**Ms. Sue**, Tuesday, April 28, 2009 at 7:15pm"The height of each triangles is 12 inches . . ."

Do you mean the height of ONE triangle is 12 inches?

The base and height of one triangle are 9 and 12 inches.

9 * 12 = 108

1/2 * 108 = 54 square inches

Now, do the same math for the other triangle and add the two together.

We'll be glad to check your answer.
