The area of a triangle is base x height / 2. Height should be perpendicular to base.

Area of a triangle = 0.5 times base times perpendicular height

You have to multiply the base times the height and then divide that by 2.

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

The formula to calculate the area of a triangle is 1/2 * base * height. To understand this, think of a rectangle or a square. To calculate the area of this object you would use length * width (which is the same as base * height). If you cut this object in half, you get a triangle. So that area of any triangle is 1/2 * base * height. I cannot answer your question because you are missing the triangle's height but you should be able to use the formula above to calculate the answer on your own.

Height will be h=base*tan(angle).

The formula to calculate the area of any triangle is half the length of the base, multiplied by the height. Therefore in this case it's 32.76
