Trig help

Hi, I need some help with this trig. The question is "The area of triangle ABC is 8. If the length of BC is 1/4 the length of AB, then AC equals what?

Answers
Does the triangle have any angles given ?

If angle B is 90 for example. Using the formula Area =1/2 acSinB. Would give AB as 8 and BC as 2 due to the fact that Sin 90 = 1.

And, if you wouldn't mind, I need help with a few others.

Yes, actually I did not see that, angle B is 90, so would AC be the sqrt of 68 then?
