An equilateral triangle has an altitude length of 27 feet. Determine the area of the triangle.  

 

Would it help if you realized that the altitude creates a right triangle with 60o opposite that side?  

 

tan(60) = 27 / adjacent               That adjacent side is half the base of the triangle.
