## Homework Statement

If y=x+2, y=2x+3 are medians of right angled triangle ABC (angle A=90) through B and C respectively such that |BC|=81 units. Find area of triangle.

## The Attempt at a Solution

I have been trying this since a long time.

I am posting my work in the form of 2 images. I hope my writing is legible. I think I have generated enough equations for the unknowns. But to solve them is difficult. Please help me.

I was also told that there exists a shorter method than this. I shall be glad if you could guide me to a shorter approach.
