Area of a Square Area of a Rectangle Area of a Triangle

AREA of a TRIANGLE = (.5) times the BASE times the HEIGHT.

A = (.5)(b)h)

^{Find the area for the following triangles:}

^{1) A triangle with a base of 4 yds. and a height of 3 yds.}

^{ A=6yds2}

^{2) A triangle with a base of 8 mm and a height of 16 mm. }

A=64mm2

^{3) A triangle with a base of 4x and a height of 3x.}

A=6x2
