I only have the height I don't have the other factors so how do I know what the unknown variables are?

Not Done can you tell me how you approach the problem? The steps and everything? Because I don't want the answer I want the way to solve it. Lol that's the only way a being can learn is by knowing the concept. THanks. Have a nice day!

height of the triangle = 9
radius = 5
so from center of top of triangle = 5
therefore bottom of triangle = 4
the center to the bottom right point of the triangle = 5
the triangle made by the point o the center to the bottom of the triangle is a 3, 4 ,5 triangle.
therefore half the base is 3 so the base = 6
6x9 = 54
54/2  = 27

BornToBowl is an idiot, not because he cant do math, but because he posted this in the FRIGGIN BRUNSWICK SECTION!


Well, you can not think physics without math. And you can not understand the ball dynamics without physics. And Brunswick was one of the ball manufacturers last time I checked.
That's quite a good relation to post it in here

Easy my friend.. Tolerance..
