find the area of the largest rectangle that can be inscribed in an isosceles triangle of base10ft. and area 30 square ft


3 years ago


Answers : (1)


Thats 15 sq. feet (according to me)

let the length of the part of base, not included in side of Rectangle be X both side and the vertical side length be Y......


Now the rectangle has side lengths, Y and 10-2X.......

now use similar triangle property to find relation b/w Y and X

i.e. Y=6X/5

Hence area = XxY = 6X/5x(10-2X)

Use dA/dX=0 to get X=5/2

Therefore, A=15................Cool

if a and b are the roots of the equation x^2-px +(p+1)=0 then the area of the triangle whose vertices are (0,0),(p/a,p) and (-p/a,p) is
Hint. find the sum and product of roots from the given equation. Then find the area of triangle through the given coordinates (Area = (1/2)*base*altitute). Then relate the two. Thanks.

which term of the G.P. 2,1,1/2,1/4... is 1/128?
You can do this simply by putting 1/128 as an exponential term in terms of (1/2) which is the common ratio. The first terrm is a=2, d=1/2, so you can either equate them directly equal to the...
