$area = \frac{ 1 }{ 2 } \times a \times b$

3. anonymous

does that mean 40 divided by 2 which in that case would be 20?

4. rishavraj

the legs measurement are $5\sqrt{2}~~~ and ~~~~ 4\sqrt{2}$ so area = $\frac{ 1 }{ 2 } \times 5\sqrt{2} \times 4\sqrt{2}$

yupif u mean tht ur answer is 20 then thts correct
