amistre64
  • amistre64
a = height' b = base; and divide it in half sine that is the area of the tris rectangle

amistre64
  • amistre64
easy, call it a heaight
amistre64
  • amistre64
tip it over onto b if you want; the measures dont change
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh so you choose which side is your height
amistre64
  • amistre64
yes; since there are only 2 sides; and b*a = a*b it makes no difference what you actually want to call them ...
anonymous
