If the shape in question is a triangle, then

Area = 0.5 * Base * Height

So Height = 2 * Area / Base

A polynomial of degree zero is a constant term

The grouping method of factoring can still be used when only some of the terms share a common factor A True B False

The sum or difference of p and q is the of the x-term in the trinomial

A number a power of a variable or a product of the two is a monomial while a polynomial is the of monomials

What is the formula to work out the area of a parrallegram?

Area = base*height


The area of a triangle is 16what isits base and height?

Base could be 8, and height could be 4. Area for a triangle is 1/2 * base * height. 1/2 * base * height = 16 base * height = 32 Any two factors will work as long as the product is 32.


How do you find the area of a right angled triangle when knowing the base?

Knowing just the length of the base you can not work out the area. You need the height and the base or the length of the hypotenuse in order to work out the area.


What is the area of a triangle that has a base of 3.2 cm and a height of 1.3?

The area of any triangle is one-half the product of (base times height). Perhaps you can work it out from there.


The height of a triangle is four times the length of the base find the base and height of the triangle if the base is 18 square inches?

18 square inches is probably the area of the triangle, not the length of the base. The length of the base would be measured in inches (a unit of length), not square inches (a unit of area). So area = 1 / 2 * base * height = 18 square inches (given) height = 4 * base (given) 1 / 2 * base * 4 * base = 18 square inches 2 * base * base = 18 square inches base * base = 9 square inches base = 3 inches height = 4 * base = 4 * 3 inches = 12 inches Checking our work: height is 4 times the base (12 = 4 * 3) area is 18 (1/2 * 12 * 3).


How do you work out the area of a triangle?

Base x height divided by 2

What is the area of a triangle whose base is 25meter and the height is 32meter?

To work out the area of a triangle, you use the equation, 1/2 base * height... So in this scenario, the area would be: (25m / 2) * 32m = 400m2


What is the formula to work out the area for a parallelogram?

Base times height. Just like a rectangle.


When you use a formula to calculate the area of a triangle does it matter which base - height pair you use.?

The side you use as the base does not matter. What does matter is that the height is the perpendicular distance between this side and the other vertex. If there is a right angle in the triangle, then use the two sides next to it as the base and height. Otherwise a bit of trigonometry will be required to work out the height of the triangle if it is not given.


How do you work out an area of a shape?

The area of a rectangle is Base x Height and its the same thing as a parallelogram but the area of a triangle is Base x Height divided by 2 So unless its a parallelogram you just X all the sides.


What is the area of a square or triangle?

To work out area of tringle you say half base x height. So if your base was 4 & height was 6 you would say half of 4 which is 2 x by height which is 6 which is 12 (6x2)
