On a geo board how would you draw a right triangle that showed 4 units squared? would you draw it with the height being the length of 4 squares and the base being the length of 2 squares which would be 1/2 (b x h) which would be 1/2 (2 x 4) = 4 units squared? Or would you do something else? Thanks.
