Step by step guide to solve Triangles

  • In any triangle the sum of all angles is \(180\) degrees.
  • Area of a triangle \(= \color{blue}{\frac{1}{2 }(base \ × \ height)}\)

Triangles – Example 1:

What is the area of the following triangle?

Solution:

Use the are formula: Area \(= \color{blue}{\frac{1}{2 }(base \ × \ height)}\)
base \(=10\) and height \(=6\)
Area \(= \frac{1}{2} (10×6)=\frac{1}{2} (60)=30\)

Triangles – Example 2:

What is the missing angle of the following triangle?

Solution:

All angles in a triangle sum up to \(180\) degrees. Then: : \(45+60+x=180 → 105+x=180 → x=180-105=75\)

Triangles – Example 3:

What is the area of the following triangle?

Solution:

Use the are formula: Area \(= \color{blue}{\frac{1}{2 }(base \ × \ height)}\)
base \(=12\) and height \(=8\)
Area \(= \frac{1}{2} (12×8)= \frac{1}{2} (96)=48 \)

Triangles – Example 4:

What is the area of a triangle with base \(6\) and height \(5\)?

Solution:

Use the are formula: Area \(= \color{blue}{\frac{1}{2 }(base \ × \ height)}\)
base \(=6\) and height \(=5\)
Area \(= \frac{1}{2 } (5×6)= \frac{1}{2} (30)=15 \)
