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