If you draw a diagonal in a rectangle you get two equal triangles, each half the area of the rectangle. Area of rectangle is base x height, so half of that is ½ x base x height. QED

Area = (base) x (height)= (5y - 3) x (11)= 55y - 33

lxb (length x base)

Rectangle: length x width triangle: (base x height)/2

This is the exact same answer as the area of a 10in x 24in rectangle. Essentially, you are multiplying the base and height of a rectangle to get its area, too.

A yard is equal to three feet, therefore two yards are equal to 2 x 3 = 6 feet.Given a base of 6 feet and a height of 5 feet, the area of the triangle will be 6 x 5 = 30 square feet.

Base x height for the area oF a rectangle(sometimes written as length x width). 1/2 x base x height for a triangle.

The area of a rectangle is length x width. The area of a triangle is 1/2 base x height. If you mean a rectangle, the area is 70 square units. If you mean a triangle, the area is 35 square units.

Base x Height

The altitude will be 6 inches in length. The area of the rectangle is length (l) times width (w) or l x w = 12 x 8 = 96 The area of a triangle is 1/2 the base (b) times the height (h), or altitude, and, because the area of the triangle is equal to the area of the rectangle, both will have an area of 96. For the triangle, 1/2 b x h = 1/2 x 32 x h = 96, and 16 x h = 96, and h = 6

For a parallelogram, the area is base x altitude. The altitude is the vertical distance between the base and the side opposite of the base. In a rectangle, which is also a rectangle, the side adjacent to the base, is equal in length to the altitude, because it is perpendicular to the base.
