Solve for h. Penny
For a triangle Area = base x height /2 Put in numbers: say we had area 100 and base 20 100 = 20 x height / 2 Now isolate the unknown on one side by doing the same thing to both sides. For instance, to get rid of the "/2" you can multiply both sides by 2 and the equations remains valid: 100 x 2 = 20 x height Good Hunting!
