The sail is 3 meters tall.

#### Explanation:

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.
