The problem tells you that you find the area of triangles by finding ½ × base × height. The problem also tells you that for this triangle, the base is 8.5 cm and the height is 5.4 cm. So to find the area you multiply ½ × 8.5 × 5.4 That product is 22.95 square centimeters Answer: The area of the triangle is 22.95 cm²

lenght of base = 8.5 height = 5.4 Area = 1/2(base times height) Area = 1/2(8.5 x 5.4)
