area of triangle with base of 6 and sides of 5

In order to find out the area of a triangle, you need to find out the height first.  Since the sides are 5 each and the base is 6, the height must be 4.

Perimeter = 16 or 5 + 5 + 6

Hence, 4 (height) x 6 (base) divided by 2 = 12.

If it's wrong, don't yell at me, kid.  You're supposed to do your own homework.

I think your ans is correct Chiangmai. you take 1/2 the base which is 3 multiply by the height is 4=12sg

Chiangmai

Well, it's too late. School year is over. He probably failed.

Maybe he only doing his homework now?

What's the height?
