Geometry
4.1 The Area of Triangle

  1. Example:
    The base and height of a triangle are 6 cm and 7 cm respectively. Find its area.
    Solution:
    Given that,
    base = 6 cm and height = 7 cm.
    The area of a triangle = 1/2 * base * height
    = 1/2 * 6 * 7
    = 3 * 7
    = 21 sq.cm.

  2. Example:
    The height of a triangle 3 times its base. Find its base if its area is given by 24 sq.cm.
    Solution:
    Let 'x' be the base of the triangle.
    Given that area = 24 sq.cm and height = 3x cm.
    The area of a triangle = 1/2 * base * height.
    i.e 24 = 1/2 * x * 3x
    i.e 24 x 2 = 3x2
    i.e x2 = 16
    i.e x = 4 cm.
    Therefore base of the triangle = 4 cm.
