### What has 8 congruent equilateral triangles as faces and 6 vertices?

A solid with 8 faces is an octahedron.
As all faces are the same it is a regular octahedron.
As such it is one of the five platonic solids - the only five 3D
objects that can be regular: the tetrahedron (4 equilateral
triangles for the faces), the hexahedron (usually called a
cube with 6 square faces), the octahedron (as asked,
8 equilateral triangles for the faces), dodecahedron (12
regular pentagons as faces), icosahedron (20 equilateral
triangles as faces).

### What is the altitude of an equilateral triangle if one side is 12 cm?

If one side of an equilateral triangle is 12 cm, then all sides
are 12 cm and all angles are 60 degrees. An altitude dropped from
any vertex in an equilateral triangle bisects the base, creating
two identical Pythagorean triple triangles. Using our old friend
the Pythagorean theorem we can calculate the altitude (= height) as
follows"
a2 + b2 = c
62 + b2 = 122
36 + b2 = 144
b2 = 108
b = 10.3923 cm.

Two of these make a rectangle 6 x 19 ie 114 sqin. there are 6 such

### What is the length of the altitude of an equilateral triangle whose side has a length of four?

The altitude/height of an equilateral triangle can be calculated
by taking the perpendicular bisector of any side. This line will
bisect its opposite angle forming two congruent right angled
triangles.
The side length of the original equilateral triangle is the
hypotenuse and the short leg of right angled triangle is half the
hypotenuse.
By Pythagoras' Theorem : 42 = 22 + L2.........where L is the
length of the altitude.
L2 = 42 - 22 = 16 - 4 = 12
L = √12 = 2√3...
