    Multiply the width times the height the divide by two I believe

    Since they do not give you the base length aka width I have no clue?

    ok.... the base of the right triangle can be found by using pythagoras' theorem you are finding a shorter side... call it b so the theorem says \[b^2 = 17^2 - 8^2\] solve for b. when you get the base, you can then find the area... using \[A = \frac{1}{2} \times base \times height\] hope it helps
