## penelope2 3 years ago a triangle has base 15ft and area 60ft^2 what is the height

1. Mertsj

A= 1/2 bh Replace b with 15 and A with 60 and solve for h

2. penelope2

wait what

3. Mertsj

What is the formula for area of a triangle?

4. penelope2

umm i really dont no 60^2?

5. Mertsj

So look in your book and find out.

6. penelope2

i dont have a book this is on paper

7. penelope2

its a packet

8. Mertsj

Look at your packet and find the formula for area of a triangle.

9. penelope2

ok theirs only questions

10. Mertsj

Ok then. I will tell you again. The formula for the area of a triangle is: A= 1/2 b h

11. Mertsj

What do you suppose A stands for?

12. penelope2

1/2bh

13. Mertsj

The A stands for area b stands for base h stands for height.

14. Mertsj

Your problem says that the area is 60 so replace A in the formula with 60

15. Mertsj

You problem says that the base is 15 so replace b in the formula with 15

16. Mertsj

Now your formula says 60 = 1/2 ( 15)(h)

17. Mertsj

Solve it for h.
