What is the ratio of the area of a square of side 5 to an equilateral triangle with sides of 5? Doesn't seem like a hard question, but the given answer is 4sqrt(3)/3.
Any ideas on how to get to this final answer?
Thanks
wat areas did U get? wat did U get when U divided?What is the ratio of the area of a square of side 5 to an equilateral triangle with sides of 5? Doesn't seem like a hard question, but the given answer is 4sqrt(3)/3.
You shouldn't have gotten an exact decimal value for the triangle, so something went wrong there. Please reply showing your steps, starting with finding the altitude of the equilateral triangle (possibly using the ratios for a 30-60-90 triangle, which is half of an equilateral). Thanks!I got 25 for the area of the square and the triangle I got 6.25
