Name: Wendy Who is asking: Other Level: Secondary Question: If a triangle of base 6 has the same area as a circle of radius 6, what is the altitude of the triangle? I am having trouble with altitude. Hi Wendy,If the height of the triangle is h then its area is (1/2)6*h = 3h. The area of a circle with radius 6 is pi*6^{2}. If the areas are equal then 3h = pi*6^{2}. Now solve for h. Cheers,Penny
