  2. 2. How Big Is My Triangle?<br />Calculating the Area of a Triangle<br />
  3. 3. A triangle is one-half of a parallelogram.<br />The second triangle has been turned upside down.<br />When the second triangle is placed adjacent to the first one, the two triangles form a parallelogram.<br />1st triangle<br />2nd triangle<br />
  4. 4. You know how to find the area of a parallelogram.<br />Height (h) = 4 in<br />Base × Height (b × h) = Area<br />6 × 4 = 24 square inches<br />Base (b) = 6 in<br />
  5. 5. If a triangle is half of a parallelogram, how do you think you find the area of a triangle?<br />Multiply base by height (b × h)<br />Multiply base by height and divide by 2<br />(b × h) ÷ 2<br />Multiply base by height and multiply by 2<br />b × h × 2<br />
  6. 6. So, how do you find the base and height of a triangle?<br /> A right triangle is easy<br />This isosceles triangle <br />isn’t too hard<br />This scalene triangle can be <br />a little more challenging<br />height<br />base<br />height<br />base<br />height<br />base<br />
  7. 7. What is the area of the triangle below?<br />Use the formula (b × h) ÷ 2<br />15 square inches<br />10 square inches<br />5 in<br />7½ square inches<br />3 in<br />
  8. 8. Is the area of this triangle 8 square inches?<br />4 inches<br />4 inches<br />
  9. 9. Draw lines to show where you could measure the base and height of this triangle.<br />
  10. 10. If this triangle has the specified base and height, what is its area?<br />21 square inches<br />42 square inches<br />13½ squareinches<br />6 in<br />7 in<br />
  11. 11. Draw lines to show where you could measure the base and height of this triangle.<br />
  12. 12. If this triangle has the specified base and height, what is its area?<br />4½ square inches <br />18 square inches<br />9 in<br />9 square inches<br />2 in<br />
