Area of a triangle area is simple to find but I am confused on this one sense I got it wrong the shape is a triangle one side of the triangle is b=4 this side is one of the longer ones there are two same length and then the bottom one , and then it says h=7 the h is down the middle of the triangle with dotted lines the area is not 28 so how do I find my answer what is the formula?

A=1/2*b*h=1/2*4*7=14

okay does the 1/2 change depending on the shape or does this formula adapt to any problem of this type?

if you have the height and the base, its always the same. sometimes you have to use the pythagorean theorem or some trig to find the height
