This is impossible. All triangles with vertices at (n, 0), (-n, 0) and (0, 1/n) have area 1.
Who asked this question? . . . It is stupid!
Express the perimeter of triangle as function of area .All these triangles have an area of 6 square units.Code:- - - - * - - - - - - - - - - - - * - - - - - - - - - - - - * - : * * * * * * : : * * * * * * : 3 * * * * * * 3 : * * * * * * : : * * * * * * : - * * * * * - - - * * * * * - - - * * * * * - - - - : - - 4 - - : : - - 4 - - : : - - 4 - - :
But obviously they have different perimeters.
So has at least three possible values.
. . It is not a function.
This comes from Schaumís Outlines Precalculus
It is a two part question and reads as follows:
A) Express the area A of equilateral triangle as function of one side s.
B) Express the perimeter of the triangle P as a function of the area A.
The answers listed are:
A) A(s)=(s squared )(square root 3)/4
B) P(A)=(6 square root A)/ (fourth root 3)
How to get to these answers???? HELP!!
