The triangle has a 45-deg angle.
The base angles are congruent and measure 67.5 deg.
The congruent sides measure 1 ft.
Use law of sines to find the length of the base.

Draw a height from the vertex of the 45-deg angle to the base.
Half of the base is 0.765 ft/2 = 0.383 ft

We can find the height of the triangle using the small triangles.

0.383^2 + h^2 = 1^2

h = 0.9239 ft

A = bh/2 = 0.765 * 0.9239/2 ft^2

A = 0.354 ft^2

Question
8x+6=5x+9
Solution 1
First step is to get variables on one side and constants on the other so that we can combine like terms. To do so, subtract 5x from both sides and subtract 6 from both sides. This gives you:

8x - 5x = 9 - 6

Now combine like terms:

3x = 3

Divide by 3 to isolate the variable x.

x = 1
