    The base is 14. Get the height using Pythagora's theorem. Area = 1/2 (base)(height).

    Yeah? Well some sites like MHF like to see the person who asks the question make an effort to understand how to do the question. Maybe even learn something rather than just getting an answer to copy. Some other sites don't give a Yahoo! about things like that ....
