A) Use the formula to find the area of the triangle.

h=5.5cm

b=10cm

B) Use the formula to find the height.

A= 28 sq inches
h=?

b= 7 inches

C) Select a possible base and height below. A = 15 sq cm


1. h = 3 cm and b=5 cm
2. h = 3 sq cm and b=5 sq cm
3. h = 3 cm and b = 10 cm
4. h = 5 cm and b = 7 cm
