Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so like this by the way my polygon is horribly drawn dw:1438911736430:dw anyways each of these triangles is suppose to be the same shape as each other

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1do you know how to find the area of a triangle given its height is 10.4 and its base is in 12 and just pretend i put the units is inches for each of those :p

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1right so .5*12*10.4 =?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i thought it was 1/2 * 10.4 *12?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1it is I just didn't feel like writing a fraction 1/2 is the same as .5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1they are the same number

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh so the answer is 62.4

myininaya

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes earlier you told me you had 6 of those triangles though

myininaya

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so you could do 62.4+62.4+62.4+62.4+62.4+62.4 or just do 6(62.4)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1area has units squared

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so the area of the area of each triangle is 62.4?
