# Given: Î” A B C is isosceles with base A B Â¯ A B = y + 7 B C = 3 y + 5 A C = 9 âˆ’ y Find: Whether Î” A B C is also equilateral Exercises 25, 26

To determine

Whether ΔABC is also equilateral.

Explanation

Definition:

The triangle whose all sides and angles are same is called equilateral triangle.

The triangle whose two sides are equal is called isosceles triangle.

Given:

The triangle Î”ABC is shown in the figure below,

Figure (1)

From figure (1),

Î”ABC is isosceles with base ABÂ¯

AB=y+7BC=3y+5AC=9âˆ’y

Calculation:

Consider the triangle Î”ABC,

From the given data,

The triangle Î”ABC is isosceles with base ABÂ¯. Then,

AC=BC (1)

Substitute (9âˆ’y) for AC and (3y+5) in equation (1)
