    The problem is to create right angle triangles given the area of triangle and base.
    Any help will be appreciated.

    Dear Bharath!
    What do you know about the area of triangles? Jan

  3. There is no unique solution to this. There are in infinite number of different
    right triangles with a given base and area, each a rotated or reflected or
    translated version of the others.

    You are also going to have difficulties doing this properly as the length of
    the base approaches 0.
