The base of a triangle is one-third as long as its height. If the area of the triangle is 54 square meters, how long is its base?

The area of a triangle is given by the formula b * h, where b is the base and h is the height. We know that the base of the triangle is one third of the height. Therefore the base = h/3 The area is 54 square metres. h/3 * h /2 = 54 gives  h^2/6 = 54 Multiply both sides by 6 to remove the denominator h^2=324 h = square root of 324 = 18. b = h/3 b = 18/3 b = 6


68? I think thats it
