    Area of triangle = (1/2) * base * height.. Now, kids base = 1/2 adults base .. and kids ht = 1/2 adults ht.. so can u compare the areas ??

    Hashir, try to help in a way that allows the student to find the answer on their own.

    That's a good rule in general, but I say that specifically in this case because Lillie mentioned in chat that she's taking a test.
