Wasn't for sure if this should be posted here or in the Linear Algebra forum. It's in my Linear Algebra class but is still fairly basic stuff I think..
I can't seem to get the correct answer for question 47 from this page and can't figure out what I am doing wrong. I tried using the formula given and also tried using the basic 1/2bh (which gives the same formula):
