Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1That's using pythagoras. Then the area is just A=bh/2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1hmm weird, i'd get A=root(3)/4 (a^2)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Huh. That is weird. That's what I got also.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1he made a mistake it seems. \[A = {\sqrt 3 \over 4} \times a^2\]
