1x8 and 5x1 don't have the same area. Wait for someone else to answer, but I am trying to figure out, logically, how they could possibly have the same area.

Eight is not a logical answer. I hope you have figured it out by now... 8+8=16. Even dividing 18 would not come to an answer of 8, it would come to an answer of 9.

Neither triangle has the same area. That answer is wrong.
