  1. Answer:

    Given :

    Area of triangle = 1176 cm²

    Ratio of base to altitude = 3:4

    To Find :

    Altitude

    Solution :

    Let the base be 3x and altitude be 4x

    [tex] \sf \: 1176 = \dfrac{1}{2} \times 3x \times 4x[/tex]

    [tex] \sf \: 1176 \times 2 = 3x \times 4x[/tex]

    [tex] \sf \: 2352 = 12 {x}^{2} [/tex]

    [tex] \sf \dfrac{2352}{12} = {x}^{2} [/tex]

    [tex] \sf \:196 = {x}^{2} [/tex]

    [tex] \sf \: \sqrt{196} = \sqrt{ {x}^{2} } [/tex]

    [tex] \sf \: 14 = x[/tex]

    Altitude = 4x

    [tex] \sf \: 4 x[/tex]

    [tex] \sf \: 4(14)[/tex]

    [tex] \sf \: 56[/tex]
