A friend of mine asked me to find the area, perimeter and the measure of each side of the triangle in the picture, but I can't, so I would like someone to solve it and explain how you did it. triangle.jpg

The height is from the upper vertex to the horizontal base on the bottom. It is not said whether the triangle is isosceles.
