add the area of the rectangle to the area of the right triangle $(l \times w)+(\frac{ 1 }{ 2 }bh)$

@johndenison it is a disservice to this website to be giving out answers.

the proper equation to find the height of the triangle will have to be: x+8 = 13 you can begin with this. The illustration is there to guide you how to begin. As I have stated earlier, you can find the area of the diagram by adding the area of the triangle and the area of the rectangle. you were given a rectangle with both the length and width dimensions, but you were given a triangle with only one dimension (just the base but without the height. Area of RECTANGLE = length * width Area of TRIANGLE = 1/2 (base * height)

$A=(l \times w) + \frac{ 1 }{ 2 } (b \times h)$ $l = 13; w = 9; b =11; h= (l-8)$ we're going to need more than being an spectator when it comes to solving math problems @vivianrush
