Area of inscribed equilateral triangle (some basic trig used) | Circles | Geometry | Khan Academy - By Khan Academy



DESCRIPTION:

This video will give you a good feel for what inscribed figures are like. It uses some trigonometry to figure out what the area of an equilateral triangle inscribed in a circle is, given the circle's radius. NOTE: We don't actually need trigonometry to solve this problem. Notice that we can view the equilateral triangle as six identical 30-60-90 triangles, the hypotenuses of which are radii of the circle, then use the 30-60-90 triangle side length ratios to figure out the rest of what we need to know to solve the problem.
