    equilateral triangle help

    need some help with this question, i've been racking my brain and cant get it, or maybe its so simple to see after looking at it for 2hrs

    here it is:

    an equilateral triangle has a perpendicular height of 6062mm. Calculate the lenght of each side. (HINT: give each side a value of 2)

    If anyone can show me would be greatly helped and noted
    Thanks
