From Gracie:
i really need help with this problem in my math book, will you help?

"Derrick drew regular pentagon with side lengths of 8 centimeters. He divided the pentagon into 5 identical triangles, and measured the height of one of the triangles to be 5.5 centimeters. Find the area of the pentagon."

this really makes no sense to me. Can you help me with anything to make it easier?
