### Height of an isosceles triangle?

If you know the length of the sides, you can use Pythagoras' Theorem to calculate the height. Use half the base for one of the shorter sides, and either of the two identical sides of the triangle for the hypothenuse. Solve for the other one of the shorter sides (the height).

### How do you find the heighth of a triangle?

To find the height of a triangle, you can use the formula: height = (2 * area) / base. The base of the triangle is one side of the triangle to which the height is perpendicular. The area can be calculated using different methods depending on the information available, such as using the lengths of the sides and Heron's formula or using the base and the height.

### When calculating area what are the similarities between triangles and parallelogram?

Parallelogram = Base*Height Triangle = 0.5*Base*HeightParallelogram = Base*Height Triangle = 0.5*Base*HeightParallelogram = Base*Height Triangle = 0.5*Base*HeightParallelogram = Base*Height Triangle = 0.5*Base*Height

### What is the formula for finding the surface area of a triangle?

The formula for the area of a triangle is base times height, divided by 2. The base is one of the sides and the height is a perpendicular line connecting the base to its opposite point.

### What is the area of a triangle with sides 8m and 9m and base 6m?

Is the height 9m or 8m? Area of triangle = Base x Height / 2 If the height is 9m... The area is 37m squared If the height is 8m... The area is 24m squared.

### Explain Why the height of a triangle depends on which side you select for the base?

The height of a triangle is the length of the perpendicular dropped to the base (extended if necessary) from the opposite vertex. This depends on which side is the base, unless the triangle is equilateral. For example, if you have a tall skinny isosceles triangle whose equal sides are a mile long and the third side is an inch long, the height is about a mile if you choose the third side as the base. If you choose either of the other two sides as base, the height will be about an inch.

### How do find area of triangle?

1/2bh b=base h=height To find the are of a triangle,you have to multiply the base times height and divide the answer by 2. To find the area of a triangle you need to multiply all the sides of the triangle and then divide by 2.

### What angle does the height intersect with the base of a parallelogram?

The height is a perpendicular angle from the base. The sides of the parallelogram are slanted tho and this will vary for every parallelogram. To find the height you typically make a triangle with one of the slanted sides.
