BD = 3.5/tan(35°)

CD = 3.5*tan(23°)

Area of triangle ABC = 1/2(3.52/tan(35°) - 3.52*tan(23°))

$${\mathtt{Area}} = \left({\frac{{{\mathtt{3.5}}}^{{\mathtt{2}}}}{{\mathtt{2}}}}\right){\mathtt{\,\times\,}}\left({\frac{{\mathtt{1}}}{\underset{\,\,\,\,^{{360^\circ}}}{{tan}}{\left({\mathtt{35}}^\circ\right)}}}{\mathtt{\,-\,}}\underset{\,\,\,\,^{{360^\circ}}}{{tan}}{\left({\mathtt{23}}^\circ\right)}\right) \Rightarrow {\mathtt{Area}} = {\mathtt{6.147\: \!498\: \!292\: \!005\: \!575\: \!7}}$$

Area ≈ 6.147cm2.

Area of a triangle ABC = area ABD - area ACD

Area ABC = 8.75cm2 - 2.6cm2

Area ABC = ≈6.15cm2

Area of ABC =  (1/2)(BC)(AD) =

(1/2)(3.5 )(3.5)  ≈ 6.125 sq cm

Hello everybody.I am fiora.And I going to do this problem with you all.

First,I think you guys only get part of the answers right.

Now,let me repeat the question, The angles: B = 35o,  A1 = 23o  and   h = 3.5cm ; (The angle  A1 is located between  b and  h ) Find the area of a triangle  ABC.

At first, what is b? b in this question can be the base of the triangle or the opposite side of the angle B.

However, if b is the base of the triangle ,then b is perpendicular (90 degrees) to the h (height),but according to given,the angle between b and h is 23 degrees,so b can not be the base.

Now,b can only be the opposite side of angle B.

Here is my picture of this situations.

In triangle ABC, the opposite side of angle B is AC

and in triangle ABE,the opposite side of angle B is AE

Threfore angle ACD=180 degrees -angle CAD- angle ADC=180 degrees -23 degrees -90 degrees=67 degree

1/2[3.5cm*（3.5cm/tan(7pi/36)-3.5cm/tan67(pi/180)=1/2[3.5cm*3.5128561668618683cm]

=6.14749829200826952 cm^2

In triangle ABE,h (AD) is the height of the triangle

so CD=ED=3.5/tan(7pi/36) (the corresopding sides of congruent triangles are equal)

Hi Fiora,

Your Desmos graph has spun me out!

Your graph is brilliant but have you ever tried to use GeoGebra?

It is heaps easier for this and it is a free download.

Your GeoGebra diagram is really impressive too CPhill - You are becoming an expert
