Question #17324

Find the area of a triangle bounded by the lines y=x, y=-x, and y=6?

Expert's answer

we have vertices

(0, 0) intersection y=x, y=-x

(6,6) intersection y=x, y=6

(-6,6) intersection y=6, y=-x

the height of this triangle is 6 inches and side oftriangle for this height is 12 inches so area=0.5*6*12=36 inches^2

(0, 0) intersection y=x, y=-x

(6,6) intersection y=x, y=6

(-6,6) intersection y=6, y=-x

the height of this triangle is 6 inches and side oftriangle for this height is 12 inches so area=0.5*6*12=36 inches^2
