    Have you heard of Pythagoras' theorum,?
    Isosceles contain two of same angles and one different angle e.g 70 70=140
    180-140= 40
    Pythagoras is to find the longest length in a triangle only right Angle triangle tho.
    Square /square /add square root

    I don't know what year you're in at school but I'm in A levels and so the distance formula would help in finding the length between two points heres the formula:

    Where D = Distance

    (x2-x1)^2 = (4-1)^2 = 9
    (y2-y1)^2 = (1-3)^2 = 4
    9+4 = 13
    and square root this
    so the distance is Root 13

    You don't. You know that area of a triangle is bh/2 and should know what b and h are.

    Of course that method is valid. It's just overkill and the question is trying to lead you to use the area as I suggest above.

    IGCSE

    And I know this method may not be the correct way to do it but I checked the mark scheme and they give both 2 marks for using this method as well.
