Q:
# Compute the area of a triangle with sides. 10 x 10 x 16 Area = ? square units

Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:48 square unitsStep-by-step explanation:To find the area of this triangle, we may use Hero's formula: A = sqrt ((s)(s - a)(s - b)(s - c))where s is the semi - perimeter, a, b, and c are the measure of the sides. s = (a + b + c) / 2 = (10 + 10 + 16) / 2 = 18Substituting this in the equation for area, A = sqrt ((18)(18 - 10)(18 - 10)(18 - 16)) A = 48 units²
