Hey I was wondering how in the whole world do you ever figure out THIS question. I have been on it for hours.... How do you figure out the height of a triangle when all you have is the length of the sides of the triangle?



Method 1: Draw the triangle and measure the height (which will depend, of course, on the
side which you pick to be the base).

Method 2: Try to explain the answer you arrived to in method 1 using algebra and
the pythagorean theorem.
