1/2 X Base X Height (I am assuming you were trying to enter 3 5/8 and 2 1/2) 1/2 x 29/8 x 5/2 = 145/32 = 4 17/32 square inches

### How do you find the area and perimiter of a triangle?

To find the area of a triangle find the base and the height of
the triangle. Then multiply the base by the height, then divide by
2. To find the perimiter of a triangle add together the outside
edge of the triangle. To find the area of a triangle find the base

### Can you find the base and height measurements for a triangle if the area is 22?

No.
I can only find the height in terms of the base (and area) of
the triangle, or the base in terms of the height (and area) of the
triangle.
Specifically, since:
area = 1/2 x base x height
⇒ 22 = 1/2 x base x height
⇒ 44 = base x height
I can rearrange that to:
height = 44 ÷ base
or
base = 44 ÷ height
For example, the triangle could have a base of 11 units and a
height of 4 units; alternatively, the triangle could have a base of
10 units and a height of 4.4 units;
or, the triangle could have a height of 2 units and a base of 22
units;
etc.
