The base of an isosceles triangle is 6cm and each of its equal sides is 5cm. The height of the triangle is –

It is given in the question that,

Base of the isosceles triangle = b = 6 cm

Two equal sides = a = 5 cm

We know that,

Height of an isosceles triangle =

=

=

=

=

= 4 cm

Hence, option (c) is correct
