Area of a Triangle

Finding the Area

Here is a triangle.

The base of the triangle is 48cm. The height is 93cm.

We need to find the area.

This is the relevant formula:

$$A = \frac{b × h}{2}$$

Let’s substitute the numbers into the formula:

$$A = \frac{48 × 93}{2}$$

Simplify:

$$A = \frac{4464}{2}$$

Keep going:

$$A = 2232$$

Finally, we put the appropriate units in.

We just found the area, so the units are cm2.

$$A = 2232cm^2$$
