Compare triangles ABC and AEC and AFC
The heights are the same = BD = EC = FG
The bases are the same = AC = AC = AC
... and there are an infinite number of triangle in between.

Infinitely many triangles can be constructed from dimensions of the base of 5 cm and height of 1 cm. Slide the base left or right and keep the same height. There can be infinite numbers of triangles with the same area, height, and base.

Someone just gave a good answer for this question a few minutes ago (although they had a typo and made the light parallel line 5 cm from the base and not 1 cm).
