Question: 6

Difficulty: medium


Since we have an isosceles triangle, we know that there are 2 equal sides

So, EITHER the missing side has length 15 to give us a 15-15-22 triangle OR the missing side has length 22 to give us a 15-22-22 triangle.

The perimeter of a 15-15-22 triangles = 15 + 15 + 22 = 52
The perimeter of a 15-22-22 triangles = 15 + 22 + 22 = 59

I have a similar question.. There are two isosceles triangles A and B with sides as 20 and 10 respectively, which one would have max area?
