Question:

# Chad wants to paint one wall of the shed in his backyard and needs to find its area to calculate his paint needs. Strangely enough, the shed wall is triangle shaped. What formula should he use to find the area of that wall?

A $A= \frac{\mathrm{base \times height}}{\mathrm{2}}$
explanation

The area of a triangle can be computed from the formula:
$Area=\frac{\mathrm{(base \times height)}}{\mathrm{2}}$
Alternately, you might remember the formula as
$Area= \frac{\mathrm{1} }{\mathrm{2}} bh$
