You cannot calculate the height of a triangle from just the length of two sides. You would either have to measure it or obtain additional information about the triangle.

How can you find the length of the 2 sides of an isosceles triangle when you know the base and the height?

By using Pythagoras' theorem.


Given the sides of a triangle how do you find the height?

By using sides we get area of triangle and then using (1/2)heightxbase we get height.


How do you find the height of an isosceles triangle when given only the three side lengths?

Make it a right triangle where one side of the right triangle is half the length of the non-identical side of the isosceles, the hypotenuse of the right triangle is the length of one of the identical sides of the isosceles triangle, then use the Pythagorean theorem. a^2+b^2=c^2. Where "a" is the length of one of the identical sides, and "c" is the length of half the non-identical sides. Solve for "b" and that is your height.


How do you find the area of a triangle if you know the length of all three sides?

The area of a triangle (At) is one half the length of the base (b) times the height (h).Atriangle = 0.5bhThe height of a triangle is the length of the line drawn perpendicular (at right angles to) to the base from the angle opposite the base.


How do you find the side lengths of an equilateral triangle if all you know is the height?

you times the length by the amount of sides then you divide the answer by 100


Area of an isosceles right angled triangle?

The area of a right angled triangle would be .5 * length *width where the length is the height of the triangle. To find the height of the triangle, take the sine of 45 degrees, which is the degree of the angles other than the 90 degrees, and multiply it by the length of one of the two equal sides. The width of the triangle is the length of the bottom side.


How do you find the base and the height of a triangle if you have the hypotenuse?

You cannot. You need to know the length of one of the sides to find the other, or either of the acute angles.


Find the area of a triangle with a base of 5ft and height of 6ft and 3ft?

The triangle only has one height, not two. The height is NOT the length of the other two sides, besides the one it's sitting on. The height is exactly that: the height. It's how high the ceiling has to be if you want to stand that triangle up in a room. In general, the height is LESS than the length of either side that the triangle is not sitting on.


Who found out how to find the area of a triangle?

Find the length of the base and the perpendicular height. Multiply together. Divide answer by 2. Area of Triangle = ½(Base x Perpendicular Height) For right angled triangles, take the length of the two shortest sides, multiply them together and divide the answer by two.


How do you find the perimeter of a triangle when all three sides are given?

If you have the length of each of the three sides of a triangle, you can find the perimeter of (the distance around) the triangle by adding the length of the sides. Their sum will be the perimeter of this geometric shape.
