i have a question in math
(( distance between two points ))
the vertices of a right triangle are S(2,2), T(10,2), and R(4,5). find the area of the triangle.
please in detales .. thank u

first of all, your triangle is not rightangled.
The slopes are 7/6, 7/6 and zero
None of these are negative reciprocals of each other, a condition for a right angle.
But the area is easy to find
Clearly the base ST = 12 units and the height from R to ST is 7
So the area = 1/2 x 12 x 7
= 42 units^2 
thank u

can u explain how u get the height ?
