I have come across a problem two days ago which I could not solve.It's a basic problem but i need a procedure for the problem.

A triangle of sides of lengths a,b,c and the angles opposite to the sides are A,B,C respectively , satisfies the following condition :

a + b = tan (C/2) [ atan (B) + btan (A) ]

The perimeter of the triangle is 36 cm...and the side length c = 16 cm...then the area of triangle is ** ____** .

[WHEN I ATTEMPTED A QUESTION IN I.M.O. ,THEY SAID IT IS ACTUALLY AN ISOSCELES TRIANGLE.......BUT I DON'T KNOW THE PROOF. ]

you could understand the question right :) now did you solve the problem

I haven't tried it yet. The problem as it is might be understandable, but if you typeset your problem, it looks better and thus users are way more likely to try the problem. :)
