A rectangle and a triangle have equal areas. The length of the rectangle is 12 inches, and its width is 8 inches. If the base of the triangle is 32 inches, what is the length, in inches, of the altitude drawn to the base?

(triangle area) = (1/2)*32*h
= 96 (rectangle area)
32 h = 192
h = ? is the altitude you want
