Ms. Sue,
b = base
h = height
A = 1/2 * bh

Caine,
Area of a triangle is equal to base times height

Caine,
Sorry one half of that

math 
Yog,
So do you mean that I should multiply the base (7) by the height (18)?

math 
Ms. Sue,
Yes. Then divide the product by 2.

math 
Arianny,
the answer should be 63. right?
