Hey rcs.
What is the formula for the area of a triangle and a rectangle?
Hint: consider that the h in 1/2*b*1.25*h for the triangle is that area whereas b*h is the area of the rectangle.
A triangle and rectangle have equal bases. If the altitude of the triangle is 25% longer than that of the rectangle , find the ratio of the area of the rectangle to that of the. Rectangle.
can anybody help me understand the problem... I can visualize how it looks like and how to get the ratio of the area
thanks
