A triangular sail has a base length of 2.5 meters. The area of the sail is 3.75 square meters. How tall is the sail?
The sail is 3 meters tall.
The following formulas is used to find the area of a triangle.
B is the length of the base of the triangle.
H is the length of the height.
In this problem, we are giving A and B. We are looking for H. All we need to do is plug in the values that we have.
Next, we can simplify a little.
Finally, we simply isolate the variable H by moving all numbers to the other side.
