A = 1/2 bh  where: A = area  b = length of the base  h = height of the triangle  Using the given,  33.6 = 1/2 (b)(4) substitute the given values  33.6 = 2b simplify the right side; 1/2(4) = 2  16.8 = b divide both side by 2  Therefore, the length of the base is 16.8 inches.

Formula for the area of a triangle= 1/2(b*h) area= 33.6 33.6*1/2= 16.8 So the length of the base is 16.8 inches
