But is it possible to somehow prove without using Pythagoras Theorem or common sense?
Edit:I just worked out the proof, but if you have ways to prove it other than the angles of an iscoceles triangle and possibly angles of an equaliteral triangle it would be interesting to hear.

Did anyone else get this as their childhood interpretation of the A=bh/2 proof with equalateral triangles? I did.
