sorry...i don't get it....why we are using the formula: Area of triangle/semi-perimeter of triangle= r?? · 4 years, 2 months ago

the answer is nearly 10 but accurate is 9.78 · 4 years, 2 months ago

No, the answer is exactly 10 cm. · 4 years, 2 months ago

BC=10 cm,use the formula: Area of triangle/semi-perimeter of triangle= r, where "r" is the in-radius.Use hero's formula to find the area of the triangle, considering the reqd. side to be "x". You would get a quartic equation later on and that's the hardest part of the solution I feel and then you will get 10 cm as the answer. · 4 years, 2 months ago
