**Area of a Triangle7.3**JMerrill, 2009**Area of a Triangle (Formula)**• When the lengths of 2 sides of a triangle and the measure of the included angle are known, the triangle is uniquely determined. Use: • S = ½ ab sin C • S = ½ bc sin A • S = ½ ac sin B Do not memorize all the individual formulas, memorize the pattern: S = ½ (one side)(2nd side)(sine of incl. angle)**Example**• Two sides of a triangle have lengths 7cm and 4cm. The angle between the sides measures 73o. Find the area of the triangle. • S = ½ (7)(4)sin 73o • S = 13.388cm2**You Do #1**• Given the triangle ABC with measures of b = 3, c = 8, <A = 120o, find the area: • 10.392units2**Find the area of a regular hexagon inscribed in a unit**circle (means the radius is 1 unit). Then approximate the area to 3 significant digits. Example Flashback to geometry…what does “regular” mean? First, divide the hexagon into six congruent triangles.**Second, label the known quantities**S=6(½)(1)(1)sin60 S=2.60 units2 Example 1 1 60o Where did the 6 come from?**You Do #2**• Find the area of a regular octagon inscribed in a circle with a radius of 20. Round to the nearest tenth. 1131.4 units2**Approximate the area of the irregularly-shaped piece of land**(hint: split it into 2 triangles, one of which is a right triangle). All measurements are given in feet. Round to the nearest whole number. You Do: Challenge 16 110o 5 12 Area of right triangle: 30ft2 Length of drawn segment: 13ft Total area: 101ft2
