Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1area of a square = (side length)^2 area of triangle = (1/2)(base)(height) the side length of the square is 12 the base of the triangle is also 12 (it's the same length as the square) and the height is 6 so, let's start by finding 1. the area of the square 2. the area of the triangle

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The area of the triangle is 36 in2, so she can create only 2 triangles. The area of the triangle is 72 in2, so she can create only 2 triangles. The area of the triangle is 36 in2, so she can create only 4 triangles. The area of the triangle is 72 in2, so she can create only 4 triangles.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1not quite, remember that area = (side length)^2 what is 12^2?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1hm, not quite remember: area of triangle = (1/2)(base)(height) base = 12 height = 6

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no need to apologize, that's why we're here! :) ok, so the total area of the square is 144, and the area of the triangle is 36, right? to find out the number of triangles she can make, we divide the area of the square by the area of each triangle so, what is 144/36?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1great! so, she can make 4 triangles and each triangle has an area of 36 inch^2 so, which of the 4 answer choices do you think it is now?
