the area of an equilateral triangle is 36cm^2 Each side is x Find the value of x I tried bh*1/2=36 but that just ends up cancelling everything. What do I do? It looks like x=1 but I'm not sure :/

But in an equilateral triangle, (from pythagoras' theorem) Sub in your formula: You should be able to solve for the length of the base now.
nope :/ ???
Come on, it's not difficult. Then take square root on both sides to get the length of the base, which is also equal to x.
