Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Formula for the area of a triangle is 1/2bh. Do you have any diagrams for this? IF not then I'll assum it will look like this:dw:1433175385799:dw First thing you have to do is find the length of of the base, which is the length of AB Then find the height/altitude, which is the length of CD Calculate the lengths using the distance formula. Then after you find the value, apply the the formula for the area. Give me a sec. I'll try to solve it also and I'll tell you if we get the same thing.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The only thing i know abou the distance formula that it is derived from the Pythagorean theorem. And to find the distance between two points (x1,y1) and (x2,y2), all that you need to do is use the ...
