The base of a triangle is 2cm more than the height. The area of the triangle is . Find the base to the nearest tenth of a centimeter.
Attempt @ Solution
Area of Triangle =
Let x represent h (height), and let x represent b (base)
h = x
b = x + 2
Standard Form: a = 1, b= 2, c= 10
Sub in values into quadratic equation and solve for x which would give you the height, then add 2 to that value which would give you the base.
Is this correct ?
