*Editor’s note*: I am not great at Advanced Algebra, however I excel at Geometry and Trigonometry. I visualize the cartesian plain in 3D and can see all the X;Y;Z axis and plotted points in relation to these axis; because of this ability, and having to solve for unknowns with random numbers, with no relationship to anything I couldn’t visualize nor relate to the question which eventually led to my disinterest in Algebra and any form of Advanced mathematics.

When I was manic I was doing some design work and needed 4 perfect/equal triangles from a square, Photoshop didn’t help me much and neither did any CAD software, I wanted measurements and a formula to calculate all this. After looking high and low on the internet I decided I will do it myself.

I honestly don’t know where I started, but it was obvious the values of area and degrees was a strong foundation and starting point.

**How it started**

—————————————————————————————

x = 360(Square)

y = 180(Triangle)

x = 2y

360 = 360

360 = 2(180)

Square = 2(Triangle)

360 = 2(180)

360 = 360

1= 1

Square = 2(Triangle)

Squares Area = b²

Triangles Area = 1/2(b.h)

Square = 2(Triangle)

360 = 2(180)

b² = 2[ 1/2(b.h)]

I have many sketches and documents where I made very very complicated and variable equations to minus area(2D) and divide area(3D) with all different shapes from Quadrilaterals, Triangles, Circles, Octagons, Hexagons etc… I vaguely remember in High School having to work out all the areas of shapes and minus those results and then getting the required area(x). The long method(s) and many equations just frustrated me to no end and resulted in many mistakes and trial and error.
