The formula for the area A of the triangle is A=1/2BH, where B is the length of the base, and H is the height. Solve the equation for B.
I don't know how I'm supposed to be able to figure this out?

  2. I think maybe what's being asked is to get an equation with B on the left-hand side.


    multiply both sides by 2


    divide both sides by H

    2A/H = B


    B = 2A/H
