## How do you do base times height divided by 2?

## How do you do base times height divided by 2?

To find the area of a triangle, multiply the base by the height, and then divide by 2. The division by 2 comes from the fact that a parallelogram can be divided into 2 triangles. For example, in the diagram to the left, the area of each triangle is equal to one-half the area of the parallelogram.

**What is the formula for base times height?**

The area of a rectangle is base × height, alternatively written as length × width.

### What formula is half base times height?

The area of a triangle is half its base times its height: A=0.5bh.

**What formula is V BH?**

The volume of a cylinder can be determined using the formula V = Bh where B is the area of the base of the cylinder and h is the height.

#### What is a BH formula?

The formula for the area of a parallelogram is: A = bh, where b is the length of the base and h is the length of the height. The formula for the area of a rectangle is: A = lw, where l is the length of the length and w is the length of the width of the rectangle.

**Why is the area half of BH?**

Why is the Area “Half of bh”? THEN the whole area is bh, which is for both triangles, so just one is ½ × bh.

## What is a 1/2 BH?

A diagonal of a rectangle separates the rectangle into two congruent triangles. The area of each triangle is one-half the area of the rectangle. So, the area A of a triangle is given by the formula A=12bh where b is the base and h is the height of the triangle.

**What is V pi * r 2 * H?**

The formula for the volume of a cylinder is V=Bh or V=πr2h . The radius of the cylinder is 8 cm and the height is 15 cm. Substitute 8 for r and 15 for h in the formula V=πr2h .

### What is area multiplication?

Multiplying by a 1-digit number using area models Show the problem as the area of a rectangle, and then break that rectangle into smaller chunks for easier solving. This method is also known as box multiplication.

**How do you solve for B in BH 2?**

Algebra Examples Cancel the common factor of 2 . Cancel the common factor. Divide each term by h and simplify. Divide each term in bh=2A b h = 2 A by h h .
