An interesting question! :D
ABC is an equilateral triangle such that the vertices B and C lie on two parallel line at a distance of 6.If A lies between the parallel lines at a distance 4 from one of them then the length of a side of the equilateral triangle is=?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\(a=\sqrt{x^24^2} \\ b=\sqrt{x^26^2} \\ a+b=\sqrt{x^22^2}\) you can find 'x' from here.
