###### Exercise41

A triangle’s area is $$99$$ square meters. Its height is $$11$$ meters. Suppose we wanted to find how long is the triangle’s base. A triangle’s area formula is

\begin{equation*} A=\frac{1}{2}bh \end{equation*}

where $$A$$ stands for area, $$b$$ for base and $$h$$ for height. If we let $$b$$ be the triangle’s base, in meters, we can solve this problem using the equation:

\begin{equation*} {99}=\frac{1}{2}(b)(11) \end{equation*}

Check whether $$36$$ is a solution for $$b$$ of this equation.

• Yes

• No
