The area (A) of any triangle is half the product of its base (b) and the height (h). If the base of a triangle is 16mm and it's height is 3mm, what is the area?

Hi, All you do is multiple the fraction 1/2 by 16 and then by 3. You should get 24mm

24 square mm

oops! I stand corrected! 24 mm squared is correct!
