# Area Of Isosceles Triangle

**Vedic Maths trick to find Area Of Isosceles Triangle**

#####
The **Altitude** drawn to the **Base** of an isosceles triangle is **20cm** and the **Parameter** is **160cm**. Find the area of triangle.

Using these formula's we can find the Aea Of Isosceles Triangle:

AB = AC = Legs of the triangle.

BC = Base of the triangle.

So, Parameter of the triangle is :

P = AB + BC + AC

Let's take value 'x' and put it in the required field of Parameter.

example : x + BC + x = p

Now, we will find the altitude of the trangle by using pythagoras theorem.
Formula :

AC = hypotenuse

AD = Altitude

DC = Base

After putting values in the pythagoras theorem we will get the Altitude of the trangle which is **69.3cm**

Now, we will find the area of the triangle

FOrmula is :

Base of Triangle = BC

Altitude of Triangle = AD

Area of triangle = ^{1}/_{2} X Base of Triangle X Altitude of Triangle.

After putting values we will get the Area of isosceles triangle : **693cm**^{2}
