How do i find the area of a triangle? For example:
A squared + b squared= c squared
8.5 squared + 6.4 squared= c squared
72.25 + 40.96= c squared
113.21=c squared
10.6400188=c
even tho i thought this was the answer it is not because it does not solve the code on the worksheet. does anyone have any idea what i did wrong and how to get the right answer?

area of triangle = 1/2*height*base.
I think you have the area confused with the Pythagorean theorem.

Can someone check my answer please! I'm not sure this is right x(squared)+7x+10=0 (x+r)(x+s) =x(squared)+sx+rx+rs =x(squared)+(r+s)x+rs x(squared)+(r+s)x+rs=x(squared)+7x+10 r+s=7 rs=10 (2)(5)=10 and 3+4=7 x(squared)+7x+10=(x+5)(x+2)
