What does your triangle look like?

#### Step 1. Identify the base and height of the triangle.

Imagine the triangle is a mountain. The base must be flat and the height connects the base of the mountain to the peak.  We have some questions for you! Help us out through this
INTRO
When we’re asked to find the area of a triangle, what we’re looking for is the amount of space inside the sides of our triangle. The formula is pretty straightforward, but correctly identifying the base and the height of the triangle can sometimes be tricky. That’s why we like to imagine triangles as mountains!  ### Type of Triangle:

We can imagine the triangle as a mountain where the base is flat (), and the height is a vertical line that connects the base to the peak ().
KEY STEPS

## How to Find the Area of a Triangle

### Step 1. Identify the base and height of the triangle.

Imagine the triangle is a mountain. The base must be flat and the height connects the base of the mountain to the peak. ### Step 3. Divide by 2.

We divide by 2 because the area of a right triangle is equal to ½ the area of a rectanglemade up of two right triangles with the same base and height. LESSON
