It is not possible to answer this question. The shape could be a triangular prism or pyramid and they will have different volumes.

-- Imagine what you have if you slice the triangle in half along the height ...-- You have a right triangle. One side of it is 1/2 of the base, and one side isthe height.-- The slanting side is the hypotenuse of the right triangle, and knowing whatyou know about right triangles, you can calculate its length.-- Once you do that, you have the lengths of all three sides of the original triangle,and you can calculate the perimeter.



A triangle has no volume - it is a 2-dimensional shape only. To find the area, multiply the base times the height, then divide by 2. The base is any side of the triangle; the height must be measured perpendicular to the base.


You multiply the length by the width by the height. Multiply side 1 by side 2 by side 3.



You cannot determine the height from the information provided: more is required.

The side you use as the base does not matter. What does matter is that the height is the perpendicular distance between this side and the other vertex. If there is a right angle in the triangle, then use the two sides next to it as the base and height. Otherwise a bit of trigonometry will be required to work out the height of the triangle if it is not given.


If the triangle is right-angled then you should be able to use Pytharoras Theorem to calculate the missing side otherwise you need an angle to be able to use trigonometry


Really you don't have enough data to calculate this.The height is not necessarily one of the three sides. The height is perpendicular to the width.If the triangle has a right angle, and you know two of the sides, you can calculate the third side using the rule of Pythagoras (a squared + b squared = c squared).Really you don't have enough data to calculate this.The height is not necessarily one of the three sides.

it depends on what it is. cube=side^3,rectangular prism=length*width*height


No. 1/2 base squared + height squared=side squared on an equilateral triangle.


any side of the triangle that is perpendicular to the height.



The formula to calculate the area of a triangle is (base/2) x height... therefore the are of the triangle in this case is 18 square inches


That depends on what you know about the triangle. The easiest way to calculate the area is to calculate (1/2) x base x height, where the base is any side, and the height is perpendicular to the base. Other formulae exist for special cases, for example, for the case that you only know the length of the three sides.


-- Measure or calculate the length of one side. -- Measure or calculate the length of another side. -- Measure or calculate the length of the only remaining side. -- Add the three numbers. The sum is the perimeter of the triangle.


The 'base' is the length of the side that the triangle is standing on.The 'height' is the vertical distance from that line to the vertex atthe top of the triangle.


Triangles are plane figures, so they don't have volume. To find THE AREA OF A TRIANGLE, multiply the length of its base by its height and divide by two. "Base": turn the triangle so one side is level to the ground, the bottom of the page, whatever; that side's the "base". "Height": measure straight up from the base to the opposite vertex (corner).


A triangle with side 8 and height 10 cannot be equilateral if the side and height are measured in the same units (inches, cm, miles etc). And if they are not, there is not sufficient information to answer the question.A triangle with side 8 and height 10 cannot be equilateral if the side and height are measured in the same units (inches, cm, miles etc).

The height of a triangle is the point from the base to the upmost point of the triangle. On a right triangle, it is measured on the the longest side that makes a right angle. Thanks for using Answers.com!



Yes. Specifically to calculate the area, you take any side as the base, and measure (or calculate, depending on the data provided) the height, perpendicular to that base. You should get the same result in all three cases.


The method depends on the information that you have.


Area=1/2(base*height) where either side can be the base or the height in a right triangle.
