I am a geographer, but never had any serious relation to survey map creation, at least in terms of precision. I was involved in different topics. Although I was good in geometry and mathematics during high-school, years have passed and I am now in a situation that need to have some refresher in basic geometry problems.

My problems started when I had to create a certain triangle with the following length:

side a: 22.5 meters

side b: 23.20 meters

side c: 1.60 meters

height of the triangle from side a to side b: 1.60

No matter how many times I tried, I am not able to create that shape. either side c will be about 1.77 meters, or the height of the triangle will not be 1.60 meters. I am following the measurements of an old shape that was drawed by a surveyor, so before stating that there is a problem related to the old shape measurements I would like to be assured that it is not possible to create such a shape.

Thank you very much for your understanding and help.

PS: I may have some more questions regarding triangles and circles within the next time period.

Best regards,
