### Kirbys Growing Geometry Post

A rectangle had a width of 6 and a length of 14. How do you find the**area**??

A =L x W

=14 x 6

= 84

A triangle has a base of 5 and a height is 12. How do you find the

**area**??

A = 1/2 x H x B

= 1/2 x 12 x 5

= 1/2 x 60

= 30

The relationship between a rectangle and a triangle is that a right angle triangle is half of a rectangle so the area would be half of the rectangle :)

oh yea and i tried to put in a picture but it didnt work
