The question consists of two statements namely, Assertion (a) and Reason (R). Please select the correct answer.
Assertion(A) | Reason (R) |
The area of an isosceles triangle having base = 8cm and each of the equal sides = 5cm is 12cm^{2}. | The area of an isosceles triangle having each of the equal sides as a and base =b is . |
In the given question, we have
Area of isosceles triangle =
Here, we have:
a = 5 cm and b = 8 cm
∴
= 2 ×
= 2 ×
= 2 × 6
= 12 cm^{2}
Also, Area of an isosceles triangle having each of the equal sides as a and base b =
∴ Both Assertion and Reason are true
Hence, option (a) is correct
