let height be x then base will be 2x

512 = x*2x

2x(square) = 512

x (square) = 512/2

x (square) = 256

x = (root over)256

x = 16

therefore base = 16mts , height = 2*16 = 32mts

let us take height to be 'x' then, base will be '2x'

since area = 512 cm

512=(x)(2x)

( 2x)²=512

x²=512/2

=256

therfore 'x' = 16

now height='x' = 16

and, base= '2x' = 2* 16 = 32
