    Which side is the base of the triangle? Which is the height? Does it matter? Explain.

    Plug those into the formula to get the area.

    `Which side is the base of the triangle? Which is the height? Does it matter?` it does not matter because you can rotate or flip the triangle in a number of ways. You'll still get the same area

    or if A = B*H/2 and B is 7 and H is 4, what's A?
