Ted's patio is the shape of a right triangle. Tell how he should determine the area of the patio.

b = base
h = height
A = 1/2 * bh

Area of a triangle is equal to base times height

Sorry one half of that

math  Yog, Tuesday, October 2, 2012 at 7:39pm
So do you mean that I should multiply the base (7) by the height (18)?

math  Ms. Sue, Tuesday, October 2, 2012 at 7:51pm
Yes. Then divide the product by 2.
