Ricky’s friends all made guesses about the dimensions of the pool triangle used to set up the balls. The area of the pool triangle is 55^2in, and the base is 11 in. What is the height of the triangle? please explain how you got your answer !!


  1. Answer:
    h = 10 inches
    Step-by-step explanation:
    Area of a triangle = (1/2)(base x height)

    Step 1. Write area formula

    A = (1/2)bh

    Step 2. Substitute known values, A and b

    55 = (1/2)(11)h

    Step 3. Solve for missing variable, h

    55(2) = 11h
    110/11 = h
    10 = h
