Geometry: Right Triangles
posted by Anonymous .
In my math homework, it is asking me to find the height of a triangle. Does anyone know how to find the height of a triangle?
If you could, could someone give me an example problem?
Thanks a lot!
Geometry: Right Triangles -
pick any side as the base.
The height is the distance from the opposite vertex to the base.
In the case of a right triangle, since the legs are perpendicular, either leg could serve as the height.
