# If one side of an equilateral triangle is 4√3 cm, then what will be its area?

(a) 12√3 sq. cm

(b) 12/√3 sq. cm

(c) 24/√3 sq. cm

(d) 24√3 sq. cm

**Answer: (a) 12√3 sq. cm**

**Solution:-**

One side of an equilateral triangle = 4 √3 cm

**Formula-**

**The area of an equilateral triangle = √3 x (Side)^2/4**

Then, the area of an equilateral triangle = √3 . (4 √3)^2/4

= 4 x 4 x 3 x √3/4

= 12 √3 sq. cm

Hence, the correct answer is option (a) 12√3 sq. cm.
