Exactly! As long as the base and the height are kept constant, the area won't change.

When you assume that x=y=z, this triangle does not have the same base and height as a triangle for which x, y, and z are not simultaneously equal. The side AC might remain 2x (we may view this as the "base"), but the height of the triangle for which x=y=z will NOT be equal to the height of the triangle for which x, y, and z are not simultaneously equal.
