By definition, an equilateral triangle has all three sides of equal length! So it is impossible for it to have sides of length 10 inches and 7 inches!

15.2 inches.

The side length is 15.2 (15.19671) inches.

The side length is 18.24 (18.23606) inches.

There is a problem with your question, namely that such a triangle does not exist. An equilateral triangle with sides of length 10 would have a height of 5 * (root 3), which is approx 8.66 (not 7 as the question states). An equilateral triangle of side length 10 inches would have an area of 25*(root 3), which is approx. 43.3 inches2.

To get the area of an equilateral triangle, you just need to know the length of one side. Multiply the length of one side by the square root of three and then divide the product by four, and you will get the area of the triangle.

Height in inches = XV=15 Area of a triangle = base length times perpendicular height divided by 2 An equilateral triangle has three equal sides with three equal interior angles of 60o An equilateral triangle can be considered as being two right angled triangles joined together. So we can make use of trigonometry to find the base length: opposite/tangent = adjacent length of the right angled triangle 15/tangent 60o = 8.660254038 inches Base length of the equilateral triangle = 8.660254038*2 = 17.32050808 inches Area = 17.32050808*15/2 = 129.9038106 square inches Therefore the area of the equilateral triangle is 130 square inches which is correct to three significant figures.
