In the diagram above $\triangle{ABC}$ is an isosceles triangle with
$|\overline {\rm AB}| =|\overline {\rm BC}| = |\overline {\rm AC}| - 1$. If the radius of the inscribed circle is $\dfrac{3}{2}$, find the area of $\triangle{ABC}$.

Inradius     r = 3/2 = 1.5

Semiperimeter   s = (3x-1)/2

Triangle area     A = r (s)

r = {sqrt[x2-((x-1)/2)2] *(x-1)/2 } / (3x-1)/2

x = 3 + √7

I'll let you find the area of  ΔABC
