Given the side (a) of the isosceles triangle. The task is to find the area (A) and the altitude (h). An isosceles triangle is a triangle with 2 sides of equal length and 2 equal internal angles adjacent to each equal sides.
In this figure,
a- Measure of the equal sides of an isosceles triangle.
b- Base of the isosceles triangle.
h- Altitude of the isosceles triangle.
Input: a = 2, b = 3 Output: altitude = 1.32, area = 1.98 Input: a = 5, b = 6 Output: altitude = 4, area = 12
Formulas: Following are the formulas of the altitude and the area of an isosceles triangle.
Below is the implementation using the above formulas:
Altitude= 1.32, Area= 1.98
