Expert Answer:

We know that 
area of triangular field = cost of sewing field/ Rate of sowing = 783/58 = 13.5 hectare
1 hectare = 10000 m2
13.5 hectare = 135000 m2
Area of triangular field = 13.5 hectare = 135000 m2
Let altitude of triangular field be h.
The base of a triangular field is three times its altitude.
Hence, base of triangular field = 2h
Area of field = 1/2 bh
1/2 3h = 135000
we get h = 300 
Hence, altitude = h = 300 m
base = 900 m
