The problem means the picture is above. And the area of the triangle in that picture is 6. So replace A in the formula with 6 because the area is 6.

18. Mertsj

What is the height of the triangle. Look at the picture.

19. rebecca1233

height is 5

20. Mertsj

Do you read what you write? 6 = 5???????
