A = l x w
A = hbb / 2
The Attempt at a Solution
To find the area of a rectangle you would use the formula "A = L x W". In this case A = 14 x 8 which is eual to 112, Now all i need is the area of the triangle and then i add them together and that will be the area of the whole figure.
So i know we have the height of the triangle is 5
Also the part i colored yellow is 8 m long.
So my question is how can i find the length of 1 of the sides of the triangle.
