If the 2 triangles are right triangles, which are congruent to slicing the rectangle on the diagonal, then arrange one on top of the rectangle, and the other to the side, so that the two hypotenuses are in line with each other. This will make a bigger right triangle, which is similar to the smaller right triangles - each side is double of the smaller triangles.

Why do you have to divide 2 when you are finding the area of a triangle?

Picture a square. now make a line connecting the two diagonal points. If bh is the volume of the rectangle, then we only have half a rectangle for each right triangle giving 1/2 *bh or bh/2. For any other traingle put the base parallel to the ground. Make a perpendicular line to the ground then you have two parts of a triangle divided at a vertex. Each of the these parts has a right angle. Make a second triangle of the same size and if you turn it into the two triangle fromt he first triangle and cut it apart, you can manipulate it to make a rectangle. The two triangles are a rectangle which is bh. divide by two to get one triangle so 1/2*bh or bh/2
