Problem: How to find the value of x if the area of the triangle formed by (10, 2),(-3, -4),(x, 1), is 5 square units

(10,2),(-3,-4),(x,1),

Solutions:

The area of triangle is
frac{1}{2}|[10(-4-1)-3(1-2)+x(2+4)]|=5,
frac{1}{2}|-50+3+6x|=5,
6x-47=10,

x=frac{57}{6},
x=frac{19}{2},
Therefore, the value of x is 19/2 units.
