Find the areas of the triangles

1. 8 is base and 5 is height

A=bxh divided by 2

8x5=40 divided by 2=20

2. 6 is base and 7 is height

A=bxh divided by 2

7x6=42 divided by 2=21

3. 12 is base and 5 is height

A=bxh divided by 2

12x5=60 divided by 2=30

4. 11 is base and 6 is heigt

A=bxh divided by 2

11x6=66 divided by 2=33

5. 3 is base and 4 is height

A=bxh divided by 2

3x4=12 divided by 2=6

6. 15 is base and 9 is height

A=bxh divided by 2

15x9=135 divided by 2=67.5

**Damon**, Wednesday, January 18, 2012 at 6:24pmYou can do all but the last in your head easily. Simply divide whatever of the base or height is even by two, then multiply by the other.

like

5. 3 is base and 4 is height

3*2 = 6

**Connor**, Wednesday, January 18, 2012 at 6:39pmThe size of houses and buildings are measured in square feet. If you measured the outside length and width of a house and found the length was 60ft. and the width was 30ft., what is the size of the house in square feet?

60x30 and I got 1800ft
