### How do you find the area of a triangle if only the bases is given?

It is impossible, you need height or angles at least

### How is the area of a triangle related to the area of a parallelogram?

If the heights and bases are the same, then the triangle is half the area of the parallelogram.

### How is area of triangle related to parallelogram?

If the heights and bases are the same, then the triangle is half the area of the parallelogram.

A= 1/2(b)(h)

### How do you find the area of a triangle if equations are given?

It depends on what equations are given.

### Why is the formula for area of a triangle and area of a trapezoid are what they are?

area triangle = 1/2 base times height area trapezoid = 1/2 (sum of bases) times height

### What is the area of the obtuse triangle given below 9 and 2?

Area of any triangle is: 0.5*base*height

### How do you find the base and height of a triangle if you are given the area?

You can't. All you know is that 1/2 of their product is equal to the area, but you can't tell their values. There are an infinite number of triangles with different bases and heights that all have that same area.

### How is the area of a parallelogram related to the area of a triangle with the same base and height?

The parallelogram has twice the area of the triangle if their bases are the same and their heights are the same. Area triangle = 1/2 base x height. Area parallelogram = base x height.

### How do you find the area of a triangle when the area is given but the base and height are not?

You don't need to find it. From what your question states the area is already given to you.

### How do you calculate the faces of a triangular pyramid?

By doing the area for a triangle :)

### How do you find the area of a triangle with side lengths?

If you are only given the side lengths of a scalene triangle, it is impossible for you to find for the area, unless you are given more information... like the height of the triangle for example. If this is a right triangle you would like to find the area of, you can multiply the length of each leg with each other, and then divide that product by 2 to conclude the area of the triangle.
