area, A = 24 = (1/2)bh and the problem tells you that height is 3 times width (which is base), so h = 3w = 3b

Area = 0.5 * Base * Height The question tells you that the height is 3 times the base. substitute what you know into the equation and you should only have one variable left. Solve for that variable.

|dw:1348814661954:dw| Area=1/2 (x) (3x) =3/2 x^2 =24 --->x^2=16...x=4...height =3x...
