A stage for a music festival was built in the shape of an equilateral triangle with an area of 117 m2. During rehearsals, it was discovered that the stage needed to be smaller so that technical equipment and more music fans could fit into the concert hall. They removed equilateral triangles from each of the corners of the original equilateral triangle, and the stage ended up as a regular hexagon. What was the area of the new hexagonal stage?
In triangle , let be a point on and a point on . Suppose that and that . If the area of is 48, what is the area of the trapezoid ?
Given that and the area of , find the area of .
where and . If the area of , what is the area of ?
