Center of gravity and median

In the isosceles triangle ABC, the center of gravity T is 2 cm from the base AB. The median parallel to the AB side measures 4 cm. What is the area of the ABC triangle?

Correct answer:

S =  24 cm

Step-by-step explanation:

t1=2 cm t1:t2=1:2  t2=2 t1=2 2=4 cm t=t1+t2=2+4=6 cm  h=t=6 cm m1=4 cm a=2 m1=2 4=8 cm  S=a h2=8 62=24 cm
