### Area of Equilateral Triangles Examples

Example 1) Find the area of the equilateral triangle below. Give your answer to 1dp.

In this example the length of the side is 5 cm.

$So \; A = { \sqrt 3 \over 4} s^2$

$A = { \sqrt 3 \over 4} \times 5^2$

$A = 25 { \sqrt 3 \over 4} = 10.825... \; cm^2$

So the area of the equilateral triangle is 10.8 cm2 to 1 decimal place.

Example 2) What is the area of the yellow triangle below. Give your answer to 2dp.

This is an equilateral triangle with side length 8 inches.

$So \; A = { \sqrt 3 \over 4} s^2$

$A = { \sqrt 3 \over 4} 8^2$

$A = 64 { \sqrt 3 \over 4} = 16 \sqrt 3 = 27.713... \; in^2$

So the area of the equilateral triangle is 27.71 in2 to 2 decimal places.

This is an equilateral triangle with side length 3.5 m.

$So \; A = { \sqrt 3 \over 4} s^2$

$A = { \sqrt 3 \over 4} (3.5)^2$

$A = 12.25 { \sqrt 3 \over 4} = 5.304... \; m^2$

So the area of the equilateral triangle is 5.3 m2 to 1 decimal place.
