# The base length of a triangle is 12 feet and the height is 6 feet. What is the area of the triangle? CHOICES 10 square feet 12 square feet 18 square feet 36 square feet

The area of a triangle is calculated by 1/2bh $\frac{1}{2}(6)(12)$=36 sq ft
The formula to find the area of a triangle is: $\sf~A=\dfrac{1}{2}bh$ Plug in what we know: $\sf~A=\dfrac{1}{2}(12)(6)$ Multiply: $\sf~A=\boxed{\sf36}$
