There is only one basic shape for an equilateral triangle. The area can only vary as the length of the sides vary.

In our example, the area of the equilateral triangle is 1/6 of the area of the regular hexagon

225(radical "3")/4

define the sides in yards, then: area of triangle in sq yards / 4840 = acres

First convert yards to feet: 3ft/yd --> 2yd = 6 ft Area triangle = 1/2*b*h = 1/2*6*4.25 = 12.75 ft.2 or 4.25 yd2

It will be 9 times as large. And that will be true for any plane shape, not just an equilateral triangle.

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!
