if the area of a triangle is 1/2bh, then we could plug in the values that we already know and solve for height

1/2 * 8 * 24

\(A=\frac{1}{2}bh\) \(24=\frac{1}{2}8 *h\) yep c:

so its 16
Jamierox4ev3r
  • Jamierox4ev3r
i mean...sort of :P you don't multiply all three
Jamierox4ev3r
  • Jamierox4ev3r
no you solve this: \(24=\frac{1}{2}8 * h\)

its not 16 btw

half of 8 is 4
anonymous
  • anonymous
so i multiply 4 by 24
Jamierox4ev3r
  • Jamierox4ev3r
right... so you need to divide both sides by 4. \(24=\frac{1}{2}8*h\) 24=4h /4 /4 h=6

  • Jamierox4ev3r
no you divide 24 by 4. See my process up there? it's like you're solving an equation :)
