1.
Keep in mind that the height of the triangle is in yards. You need to change that to feet before finding the area.
The area of a triangle can be found by multiplying the base and the height of the triangle and dividing it by two. Whereas the two measurements shown are 6 feet and 2 feet, multiplying them gives 12 and dividing by two gives 6. So, the answer is 6 ft2.
If the height was 6 yards instead of feet, then we would ...
