# Two Sides of a Triangle Are 6 Cm and 8 Cm. If the Height of the Triangle Corresponding to 6 Cm Side is 4 Cm; Find : (I) Area of the Triangle (Ii) Height of the Triangle Corresponding to 8 Cm Side. - Mathematics

Sum

Two sides of a triangle are 6 cm and 8 cm. If the height of the triangle corresponding to 6 cm side is 4 cm; find :

(i) area of the triangle
(ii) height of the triangle corresponding to 8 cm side.

#### Solution

BC = 6 cm

area of Δ = 1/2  "base" xx "height"

= 1/2 xx "BC" xx "AD"

= 1/2 xx 6 xx 4 = 12  "cm"^2

Again area of Δ = 1/2 "AC" xx "BE"

12 = 1/2 xx 8 xx "BE"

∴ BE = (12 xx 2)/8

BE = 3 cm

∴ (i) 12 cm2 (ii) 3 cm
