I have the height (12cm) and area (108cm squared) of a triagle, from these how do I work out the length of its base? Is it as simple as tripling the height? Some how that doesn't seem right?

Thanks in advance!(Nod)

Amer Amer Amer (Giggle) 1/3?

(Lipssealed)I won't say anything else. YOU'RE BETTER THAN THAT!

therefore with a little algebra we divide both sides by h

then multiply both sides by 2

So the base of ANY triangle is two times the area divided by the hieght.

What's your area and hieght again...............?
