# How do you find a base of a triangle?

## Answer

###### Wiki User

###### 12/06/2012

Just find the length of the bottom side.

If you're looking for how to solve it with algebra, given: Area=30 and Height=4

Remember: Area of a triangle = 1/2 (base ) x (height)

Then write the equation: 30 = 1/2 (base) x (4)

To solve it, divide each side by 2 :

15 = (base)

Area of the rectangle = (base) times (height)
Area of triangle = (one half of) (base) times
(height)
Can you see the ratio now ?
