What is the area of a triangle whose vertices are R(−4, 2) , S(1, 2) , and T(−5, −4)

  • math -

    It always helps to make a sketch before you start a problem.
    In this case, notice that RS is a horizontal line, so it is easy to that RS = 5
    let's make RS the base, then since T is 6 units below that line, the area
    = (1/2)(base)(height
    = ....
