Measure the rectangle, multiply the sides. Measure the hole, find the area. Subtract circle from rectangle.

# 5x6 rectangle. 5*6 = 30 # Circle is 3 inches across, 3.14*(3/2)2 = 7.065 # 30-7.065 = 22.935

What is the area of a triangle with base 12cm and height?

The formula to calculate the area of a triangle is 1/2 * base * height. To understand this, think of a rectangle or a square. To calculate the area of this object you would use length * width (which is the same as base * height). If you cut this object in half, you get a triangle. So that area of any triangle is 1/2 * base * height. I cannot answer your question because you are missing the triangle's height but you should be able to use the formula above to calculate the answer on your own.
