12 square units 13 square units 14 square units 15 square units
Based on my calculations I though it was 13 units

thought not though
Formula for the area of a triangle is 1/2bh. Do you have any diagrams for this? IF not then I'll assum it will look like this:|dw:1433175385799:dw| First thing you have to do is find the length of of the base, which is the length of AB Then find the height/altitude, which is the length of CD Calculate the lengths using the distance formula. Then after you find the value, apply the the formula for the area. Give me a sec. I'll try to solve it also and I'll tell you if we get the same thing.
OK thanks. I just keep getting the same result...
I get a different answer. hmm.. can you tell me what did you get for the length of AB?
I just calculated the triangle and multiplied the volume against the length of it and I keep getting the same result.@Data_LG2
@Data_LG2 I suck at math AND I AM SHERLOCK HOLMES FOR CRYING OUT LOUD
i REALLY WISH SOMEONE WOULD ANSWER! I feel like I am in the math-twilight zone :(:::::
sorry late response.. do you know the distance formula?
Sort of...
|dw:1433176061208:dw|
The only thing i know abou the distance formula that it is derived from the Pythagorean theorem. And to find the distance between two points (x1,y1) and (x2,y2), all that you need to do is use the ...
yes, that is right. We have to apply it though. It is better if we do this step by step :)
Can you walk me through it... :(
|dw:1433176185824:dw| what will you get when you evaluate this?
Sorry I don't lmpw
know
alright :) what is 1-6?
I am -5????
yes, let's put that in|dw:1433176404671:dw| now what is 3-(-2) ?
1?
negative times a negative will be positive, so it will be 3+2, now what is 3+2?
Sorry I forgot.. :(::::
5
yes, now we'll put that in|dw:1433176628395:dw| now what is -5 x -5 ?
um 25?
yes. |dw:1433176810532:dw| next what is 25+25?
duh 50
k good, what is the sqrt of 50?
I think its 7.1
But the full answer is 7.07106781187
alright, that will be the base. next do the whole thing again but with the length of CD :)
Give me a second
OK. I am going with 15 units it sounds right.
can you tell me how'd you get that?
I did the whole thing and thats what I got.
I did it except witht he length of CD :)
ok?
dO You think its right. ? @Data_LG2
yes, it is right. But I just hope you understand how to get that answer :)
@Data_LG2 Thanks I learned a lot
