The radius r of the semicircle is .
Hence, the area of the semicircle is .
The area of the triangle is .
So the total area A is .
Solve A = 30 for L.
I'm trying to find the formula to get the area as a function of that length....
So far I got
1/2[sq. root(2L^2)][sq. root(L^2 - [(sq. root((2L^2)/2)]^2)] + [pi([(sq. root((2L^2)/2)^2]]/2
The question asks...find the length of l for area 30 cm^2
