What is the value of b in the triangle shown below?

The triangle they are showing is a right triangle...the length is 3b and the width is b...on the inside of the triangle it says 24in^2.

A.–4 in
B.4 in
C.±4 in
D.no solution
Please help I do not know how to do these...if I had to guess it would be B or C...thanks

1. So the area of a triangle is the following:

A =( B x H) / 2
Let's plug in what we've been told in the question

24 = (3B x B) / 2
48 = 3B x B
48 = 3B^2
16 = B^2
+ or - 4 = B

I would go with option C because if you plug in 4 in or -4 for B into the area of a triangle equation, you end up with + 24 in^2.
