## anonymous one year ago What is the area of the equilateral triangle? Round to the nearest square centimeter. http://static.k12.com/calms_media/media/1579000_1579500/1579375/2/2d5be1960b2f3dc1b032697650c58eed92d8b8b5/MS_IMC-150126-130914.jpg

Formula for the Area of an Equilateral Triangle: $A = \frac{ \sqrt3 }{ 4 } a^2$

5. KendrickLamar2014

Substitute a with 68:$A = \frac{ \sqrt3 }{ 4 } 68^2$

6. KendrickLamar2014

$A = \frac{ \sqrt3 }{ 4 } 68^2 = 2,002.25$

wont let me put it in

8. KendrickLamar2014

We have to round to nearest square centimeter

9. KendrickLamar2014

So the answer would be: 2,002
