Can you solve this?

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.

Is the triangle isosceles as it appears?

Is the height of 14 from the upper vertex to the horizontal base on the bottom?

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

Here's a diagram for the case where the height is 18 and the triangle is assumed to be isosceles. It should give you some ideas.
