# a triangle has an area of 230. 86 square inches. The height of the triangle is 23.8 inches. What is the length of the base of the triangle?

Given; Area of the traingle = 230.86 sq. inches Height of the triangle = 23.8 sq. inches We have, Area of the triangle =  $\frac{1}{2} bh$ where, b = base of the traingle h = height of the triangle Now, Substituting the given info. we get, $230.86 = \frac{1}{2} ~ b~(23.8)$ $\frac{230.86 ~*~2}{23.8} = b$ $b = 19.4$ So, the base of the triangle is 19.4 inches
