An isosceles triangle has a base of 11 cm and a height of 4.8 cm. Find the sides of the triangle.

The height of an isosceles triangle, drawn to the base, is also the median.

The lateral side of this isosceles triangle is the hypotenuse of a right triangle, one of the legs of which is the height of the isosceles triangle, and the other half of the base of the isosceles triangle.

Find the side of an isosceles triangle using the Pythagorean theorem:

√ ((11/2) ^ 2 + 4.8 ^ 2) = √ (30.25 + 23.04) = √53.29 = 7.3 (cm).

Answer: 7.3 cm.
