Three parallels

The vertices of an equilateral triangle lie on 3 different parallel lines. The middle line is 5 m and 3 m distant from the end lines. Calculate the height of this triangle.

Result

v =  7 m

Solution:

a2=32+x2 a2=52+y2 a2=82+(yx)2  32+x2=52+y2 32+x2=82+(yx)2  32+x2=82+y22xy+x2 32=82+y22xy  x=(8232+y2)/(2y)  y=11/36.3509 m  x=(8232+y2)/(2y)=(8232+6.35092)/(2 6.3509)7.5056 m  a=32+x2=32+7.505628.0829 m  v2=a2(a/2)2  v=a2(a/2)2=8.08292(8.0829/2)2=7=7  m a^2 = 3^2 +x^2 \ \\ a^2 = 5^2 + y^2 \ \\ a^2 = 8^2 + (y-x)^2 \ \\ \ \\ 3^2 +x^2 = 5^2 + y^2 \ \\ 3^2 +x^2 = 8^2 + (y-x)^2 \ \\ \ \\ 3^2 +x^2 = 8^2 + y^2-2xy +x^2 \ \\ 3^2 = 8^2 + y^2-2xy \ \\ \ \\ x = (8^2 - 3^2 + y^2) / (2y) \ \\ \ \\ y = 11 / \sqrt{ 3 } \doteq 6.3509 \ m \ \\ \ \\ x = (8^2 - 3^2 + y^2) / (2y) = (8^2 - 3^2 + 6.3509^2) / (2 \cdot \ 6.3509) \doteq 7.5056 \ m \ \\ \ \\ a = \sqrt{ 3^2 + x^2 } = \sqrt{ 3^2 + 7.5056^2 } \doteq 8.0829 \ m \ \\ \ \\ v^2 = a^2 - (a/2)^2 \ \\ \ \\ v = \sqrt{ a^2 - (a/2)^2 } = \sqrt{ 8.0829^2 - (8.0829/2)^2 } = 7 = 7 \ \text{ m }
