The area of one of those is the same as a rectangle area, the base ties the height

Yes, base times height, both are given

2/3 x 3 = 2
DanJS
  • DanJS
yep, 2 ft^2

brb one sec i need get pencil
DanJS
  • DanJS
no , that is the unit ft^2 (2/3 ft)*(3 ft) = 2 ft*ft = 2 ft^2
DanJS

Area has units of a length squared

The area of a triangle is half the base times the height

1
DanJS
  • DanJS
same base and same height as the parallelogram, so each triangle is half the area of the parallelogram
DanJS
  • DanJS
yep
anonymous
  • anonymous
and the area is 4
anonymous

@DanJS
DanJS
  • DanJS
why 4, the area of the paralellogream is 2 ft^2 (2 square feet)
DanJS
  • DanJS
And each triangle is half of that, or 1 ft^2
anonymous
  • anonymous
i see because 2/3 x 3 = 2
DanJS
  • DanJS
yes, and if you keep your units in there, you get ft*ft = ft^2
