# The base is 17 meters, and the altitude is, 8 meters, whats the area of the triangle?

$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\text{XXXX}}$$A = \frac{b \cdot h}{2}$
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\text{XXXX}}$$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\text{XXXX}}$where $b$ is the base
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\text{XXXX}}$$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\text{XXXX}}$and $h$ is the height (= altitude)
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\text{XXXX}}$$A = \frac{17 \cdot 8}{2} = 68$ (square meters)
