Best Answer

two right triangles = full rectangle

That is - if you multiply height times base of a triangle, the area will be 1/2 of a rectangle having the same height, and a width the same as the triangle 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

How do you find the area of a rectangle with a triangle attached to the side?

you split your shape in half, (The rectangle and the triangle), by putting a line through it and then calculate the area of the rectangle and then calculate the area of the triangle, half the area of the triangle then add the area of the triangle and the rectangle together!Then you should have your answer!


What is the relationship between the area of a triangle and a rectangle?

The relationship between the area of a triangle and a rectangle is a Triangle is base times height divided by 2. Area of a rectangle is length times height.


How is the triangle formula derived from the area of rectangles?

The area of a triangle is expressed using the formula A=(1/2)(bh) Where A is area Where B is length of the base of the triangle. Where H is the height of the triangle. The area of a rectangle is A=BH, Where B is the length of the base of the rectangle. Where H is the height of the rectangle. Because a triangle, essentially, is a half of a rectangle, you find the area of the whole rectangle that the triangle comes from, then divide that in half.


Why is the area of the triangle half the base times the height?

Because a triangle is half of a rectangle. The area of a rectangle is length times width, the area of a triangle is half that.

A triangle is within a rectangle. how to find the ratio of the area of triangle to the rectangle?

Sounds like the triangle is spread out so that (the point is at the top of the rectangle) and (the base of the triangle is the same as the base of the rectangle).Base of rectangle = base of triangleHeight of rectangle = height of triangleWrite the formulas:Area of the rectangle = (base) times (height)Area of triangle = (one half of) (base) times (height)Can you see the ratio now ?


How do you find area of a rectangle within a triangle?

What is the rectangle method in math?

The term "rectangle method" is used in different ways in math, but I will guess that your question is related to finding areas on a Geoboard. A Geoboard has a grid of pegs; you can make outlines of figures by stretching elastic bands around the pegs. If your figure is a triangle, you can find it's area by making the smallest rectangle which will enclose the triangle (The rectangle should have vertical and horizontal sides). The area of the rectangle can be found easily by multiplying the length by the width. The area of the triangle is half of the area of the rectangle.
