try this
In a isosceles triangle, the altitude is also a median. If we draw the altitude, then two congruent right triangles are formed, with hypotenuse length of 12m and base length 5 m (10/2). So the length of hypotenuse, by the Pythagorean theorem is
h^2 = 12^2 - 5^2
h = √(144 - 25)
h = √119
h ≈ 10.9

Don't matter the angles all three angles equal a straight line = 180 degrees
