## anonymous one year ago The area of a triangle is 45.5 cm2 and the base is 10 cm. What is the height of the triangle?

1. anonymous

Area of a triangle is $\large Area~=~ \frac{1}{2} \times Base \times Height$ Just fill in the values of $\large Area~=~45.5\\\large Base~=~10$ and then solve for the height be getting it alone :)

4. anonymous

5. anonymous

i mean width

6. anonymous

We already know that the base is 10. We'r looking for height.

Here, I'll show you what it looks like. $\large 45.5~=~\frac{1}{2} \times 10 \times Height$ Get the "Height" value alone.
