How to find the height of a triangle with only the base?


Question: How to find the height of a triangle with only the base

We know that, the area of a triangle = 1/2 × base × height

Answer: To find the height of a triangle we need both the base and the area of the triangle

Let us see why we need the area as well

Explanation:

Area = 1/2 × base × height

Height = ( 2 × Area ) / Base

We need atleast 2 variables (Area, Base) to find the unknown variable height of the triangle

Hence, to find the height of a triangle we need both the base and the area of the triangle
