Area = 1/2 b h b : base h : height The height is vertical side of the right angle; the base is the horizontal side of the right angle

You have to use trig. If the base angle is a and base b, the height is b tan(a).

Assuming you know the angle of ascension, and the base, you can calculate the height by recalling that tangent theta is height over base. Simple algebra from there: height is tangent theta times base.

the equation is 1/2 x base x height or (base x height)/2

i dont care about math even though i use it.

(base x height) / 2

Let the angle = θLet the height = aLet the base = b* means multiplied byIf the angle touches the base:tanθ = a/bb = a/tanθIf the angle touches the height:tanθ = b/ab = a*tanθWhen transferring the second line of working (b= ...) into a calculator, replace a with the height and θ with the angle. The answer will be b.
