The formula for the area A of the triangle is A=1/2BH, where B is the length of the base, and H is the height. Solve the equation for B.
I don't know how I'm supposed to be able to figure this out?

    What numbers were you given? We can show you how to figure it out with a specific problem.

    I think maybe what's being asked is to get an equation with B on the left-hand side.

    A=(1/2)BH

    multiply both sides by 2

    2A=BH

    divide both sides by H

    2A/H = B

    so

    B = 2A/H
