    Find the height \(\overline{NP}\) then use the formula \(A = bh\)

    No, it's slant height. We want actual height.

    \( h^2 + 8^2 = 10^2 \) <--We solve this for \(h\). \( h^2 = 10^2 - 8^2 \) <-- Notice that we have that exponent of 2. We have to take the square root of both sides. \( h = \sqrt{10^2 - 8^2} \) <-- This would be our value of h.
