# A right triangle has sides A, B, and C. Side A is the hypotenuse and side B is also a side of a rectangle. Sides A, C, and the side of the rectangle adjacent to side B have lengths of 7 , 2 , and 15 , respectively. What is the rectangle's area?

$A = 15$
No matter what the shape or the size of the triangle is, the formula for the area of the triangle will work $A = \frac{1}{2} b h$
