Isosceles triangle

The leg of the isosceles triangle is 5 dm, its height is 20 cm longer than the base. Calculate base length z.

Correct result:

z =  2.8 dm

Solution:

r=5 dm 20 cm=2 dm  v=2+z r2=v2+(z/2)2  52=(2+z)2+(z/2)2  52=(2+2.8)2+(2.8/2)2  z>0 z=z1=2.8=145=145 dm=2.8 dm v=2+z=2+2.8=245=4.8 dm r2=v2+(z/2)2=4.82+(2.8/2)2=5 dm
