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


2 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

Let A be any matrix such that A2=0 matrix then does it implies A is a zero matrix?
Not at all. Consider A = 0 1 0 0 It is not zero but A^2=0. Amit Jain IITD AskIITians

Not necessarily. If A 2 = 0, then such matrix A is known as Nilpotent Matrix. e.g. A = 0 1 0 0 This matrix A is not equal to zero but A 2 will be equal to zero.
