An equilateral triangle has side length 8. Find its area. Simplify your answer to the lowest terms.

The answers are:

A) 4

B) 4sqrt3

C) 8sqrt3

D) 16

E) Other

The formula to find the area of an equilateral triangle is \(\frac{\sqrt{3}}{4}s^2\)\(\) , so the answer is \(\sqrt{3}*16=16\sqrt{3}.\)

what does s mean?

s=side length of the triangle.

thank you!!!

No problem. Always glad to help!
