the three sides of atriangle are 26cm ,28 cm and 30cm.find the height corresponding to the longest side.

the three sides of the triangle are 26 cm, 28 cm and 30 cm.

by the Heron's formula:

area of the triangle =

thus area of the triangle =

let the height of the triangle corresponding to the longest side be h cm.

therefore

thus the height of the triangle corresponding to the longest side is 22.4 cm.

hope this helps you.

cheers!!
