Homework Help: Math ttriangles

Posted by Sara on Monday, February 19, 2007 at 11:10am.

how would I find the hieght of a isocscles triangle if the base was 20 and the area was 240?

To find the height of an isocsceles triangle With the area at 240 and the base at 20 aren't you supposed to divide 240 by 20?

If so what is your answer?

The area of a triangle is 1/2 base x height.

1/2 20 h = 240

Solve for h.

10 h = 240

Divide both sides by 10.

24
