Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0trigonometry, you either need to know some trig, or some thing about special triangles.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes you are, and this requires either a knowledge of trig, or knowing something about a triangle that has a 60 degree angle. either way its going to get pythaggy

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0its the same information, im trying to get you to consider how we can use an equilateral triangle to help us define the height and part of the base.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0do you agree that an equilateral has 3 equal angles of 60, and 3 equal sides?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0dw:1432871987995:dw the height splits the base in half, how do we use the pythag thrm to find the height?
