Triangles

When a triangle is incribed in a rectangle of height h and width b, the perpendicular divides
the shape. It can be seen that each rectangle formed is composed of two triangles of equal
area. Hence the area of the original triangle is half that of the rectangle.

The expression containing the sine is really the same as above.
