Hi I'm having the same problems once again. I just dont know where to start out with this problem. As you can tell I have lot of trouble with word problems.

An isosceles triangle is one where two sides have the same length and the third side has a possibly different length. Suppose you have an isosceles triangle where two sides have length "a" and the base has length "b" Then the height of that triangle is h=_______ The area of your triangle is A=______

and

Suppose you have an equilateral triangle with a height of h feet. Then its area is A=_______

and

Suppose you circumscribe a regular hexagon around a circle of radius . Thus the circle is inscribed the hexagon. The area of that hexagon is

A=______ square feet.

With these questions how do I solve them without any numbers?
