# How do you find the area of a triangle base = 5 m, height = 6 m 4 cm?

The area  = color(red)(151,000 cm^2
or
area = color(blue)(15.1 m^2

#### Explanation:

The area of a triangle when the base $\left(b\right)$ and height $\left(h\right)$ are given is

 = color(red)(1/2 xx b xx h.

Here, base = 5m = color(red)(500cm
 height = 6m4cm = color(red)(604cm

Area = $\frac{1}{2} \times 500 \times 604$

$= 250 \times 604$
 = color(red)(151,000 cm^2
