To determine

To find:

The area of an equilateral triangle.

Explanation

The area of an equilateral triangle with apothem a and perimeter P is given by A=12(aP).

Calculation:

It is given that the apothem and perimeter of the equilateral triangle are 3.2 and 19.23 cm respectively.

Use the formula of area of equilateral triangle, A=12(aP)

Substitute a = 3.2 and P = 19.23 in A=12(aP)
