# What is the area of a triangle with height of 6 and base 26?

26 x 3 ie 78 sq units. Formula is base times height, divided by 2.

### What is the length of the base of a triangle with height 16mm and area 208mm2?

It might be useful to know that the area of any triangle can be found with the following formula. Area = Base * (1/2) * Height. Let's substitute the numbers that we know for our triangle. A = B * (1/2) * H 208 = B * (1/2) * 16 208 = B * 8 B = 208/8 B = 26 The length of the base of a triangle with height (or altitude) of 16mm…

### The hypotenuse of a right triangle is 26 feet long one leg of the triangle is 14 feet longer than the other leg find the lengths of the legs of the triangle?

The hypotenuse of a right triangle is 26 feet long one leg of the triangle is 14 feet longer than the other leg find the lengths of the legs of the triangle? The best advise is to draw a right triangle with the base about twice as long as the height. Label the height x Label the base x+14 Label the hypotenuse 26 . Use Pythagorean Theorem Eq. #1..(Base)^2 + (Height)^2 = (Hypotenuse)^2 Substitute variables…

### What is the area of a trapezoidal pool with a height of 15 yards and bases of 14 yards and 26 yards?

### How do you solve An isosceles triangle has a base of 22 inches and its base angles each measure 26 degrees find the length of the altitude to the base?

The altitude to the base of an isosceles triangle bisects it forming two right angled triangles (which are congruent). In either of those right angled triangles, the altitude forms one leg and half the base of the original triangle forms the other. So, tan(26) = Alt/11 or Alt = 11*tan(26) inches = 5.365 inches.

### How do you calculate the dimensions of a square pyramid with a surface area of 260cm2?

There is not enough information given to solve the problem - explanation follows. A square pyramid can be thought of as four triangles connected by a square bottom. The area of each triangle = .5 * height(H) * length(L) The area of the square = L2 Surface area of the square pyramid = L2 + 2HL = 260 Unfortunately, without having a relationship between Length and Height, this equation is unsolvable (infinite number of solutions)…

### If a square prism has a volume of 104 cubic centimeters and a height of eight centimeters how would you find find the area?

Given: V = 104 cm3, h = 8 cm Find: Area Solution: Since V = Bh, where B is the area of the base, and h is the height of a prism, then B = V/h substitute the given values: B = 104 cm3/8 cm B = 13 cm2, which tells us that the length side of the square base equals square root of 13. The surface area of a prism = L.A. + 2B…

### A 26 foot ladder reaches a window that is 24 feet ablve the ground How far us the bottom of the ladder from the base of the house?

10 feet Explanation Think of this as a right triangle with the base being the distance between the bottom of the ladder and the bottom of the side of the house (let a represent this distance). The other base is the distance from the bottom of the house to the window (24 ft) and the hypotenuse is the length of the ladder (26 feet). By the Pythagorean theorem, a2 + 242 = 262. Solving for…

### A radius of 1 inch and be 5 inches tall the slant height of the cone is 5.1 inches?

If it is a right cone, then by Pythagoras, (Slant height)2 = 52 + 11 = 25 + 1 = 26 inches2 So slant height = sqrt(26) inches = 5.099 inches = 5.10 inches (to 2 dp) If it is a right cone, then by Pythagoras, (Slant height)2 = 52 + 11 = 25 + 1 = 26 inches2 So slant height = sqrt(26) inches = 5.099 inches = 5.10 inches (to 2 dp) If…

### Is it possible to get an area of 18 and the perimeter of 30?

Yes, but it would be very long and narrow. To get a perimeter of 30 you could have two sides that are 14 and two sides that are 1 which gives an area of 14. Conversely you could have an object with two sides that are 13 and two sides that are 2 which gives you an area of 26. Since 18 is between 14 and 26, there must be a shape between these two…

### How much fabric will you need for a triangle 56 inches by 56 inches by 52 inches?

Using a variation of Heron's formula, we can calculate the area of a triangle using only the sides: A = 1/4 √(a2 = b2 + c2)2 - 2(a4 + b4 + c4) Note - everything after the 1/4 is under the radical sign. After you crunch that all out the area of the isosceles triangle you describe is 1,290 square inches (rounded). Fabric is sold in three standard widths, the largest is 54". Assuming you…

### What is the square footage of columns 84 inches tall and 26 inches around?

Assuming you are asking for the surface area of a cylinder of height 84 in and circumference (of end) of 26 in: 12 in = 1 ft circumference = 2 x π x radius → radius = circumference ÷ (2 x π) surface_area = 2 x area_of_ends + curved_area = 2 x π x radius2 + height x circumference = 2 x π x (circumference ÷ (2 x π))2 + height x circumference = circumference2…
