It says the answer is 9, but I don't know how they got that. Any help is greatly appreciated!!

**Reiny**, Tuesday, March 11, 2008 at 10:29pmThe area is base*height(altitude)

So if the base is 12 and the height is 6 then the area is 72

but we can also calculate the area with the other base and the other height.

Let the other height be h

then (8)(h) = 72

h = 9
