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.
