Q. 5

# One side of a tri

Let ABC be a triangle, with BC = 6 cm and angles at its ends are ABC = 40° and ACB = 65° respectively.

Draw AP BC, such that APB and APC are right-angled triangles,

Let AP = 'h' cm

BP = 'x' cm and PC = (6 - x) cm

In ΔAPB,

…[1]

In ΔAPC

2.1445(6 - x) = h

= h [From 1]

12.867 - 2.556h = h

3.556h = 12.867

h = 3.618 cm

Also, area of a triangle

area(ΔABC) = 3 × 3.618

= 10.854 cm2 [appx]
