Got it thanks The figure in the link https://web2.0calc.com/questions/thanks-for-any-help_4 helped.

Area of Triangle1 + Area of Triangle2

\(1/2(b1.h1) + 1/2(b2.h2) \)

\(1/2(3.1) + 1/2(3.3) = 3/2 +9/2 =12/2 =6\)

Looks like the solution, but I was hoping for an explanation on what the numbers in "Area" formula are refering to?

Thank You

Thank you. Got it.

Yes I did see your solution as 23.31 is the value of x. I assume that it would have some rounding because of sqrt. I am trying to get to the value of x in terms of sqrt root so I do not make any approximations. Would calculus help with that?

With calculus would it be d/dt(above function) -> 0? Could you please help with calculus

Thank you. I got this as well but I wonder if I can solve without using trig

Thank You. I am not sure how to solve this without using trig

Unable to load an image but is the same as the figure in query below but trying to solve without trig

I am not sure how to add the image. I am new to this forum
