The model we want is a function that gives the area of an isosceles triangle.

Let x be the length of two equal sides of an isosceles triangle and b is given the length of its base.

Because of the perimeter of the triangle is the sum of all sides and it is 8.

Therefore,

Subtract b from both sides,

Divide by 2,

Let h be the length of the altitude to the base.

Substitute

Therefore, the area A of the isosceles triangle is given by

Thus, the area A of the isosceles triangle modeled by the function

Final statement:

The area of the isosceles triangle modeled by the function
