A road sign in the shape of a triangle has a base length of 18 inches and a height of 16 inches. what is the area of the road sign


  1. Answer: 144 in^2

    For this problem, we need to know that the area of a triangle is calculated using one half the base times the height

    Area = (1/2) * Base * Height

    We are given the base is 18 inches
    We are given the height is 16 inches

    So we use those values to compute the area.

    Area = (1/2) * 18in * 16in
    Area = 9in * 16in
    Area = 144 in^2
