# Math Help - Area of Triangle

1. ## Area of Triangle

Could someone find the area of that triangle. I know there is algebra involved. I can't find it because it doesnt label the measure of one side, it just says the whole segment, 8 cm. Thanks!

there is no algebra involved here, it is straight up arithmetic. recall that the area of a triangle is (1/2)*base*height
