Ted's patio is the shape of a right triangle. Tell how he should determine the area of the patio.
b = base
h = height
A = 1/2 * bh
Area of a triangle is equal to base times height
Sorry one half of that
So do you mean that I should multiply the base (7) by the height (18)?
Yes. Then divide the product by 2.
the answer should be 63. right?
