Question

# The ratio of base to the height of a triangle is 16: 10 and its area is 80 m². Find the height and base of such a triangle.

Hint:

### Use formula Area of the triangle

## The correct answer is: h = 10 = 10 m

### Let Base, b = 16x and Height, h = 10x

Area of the triangle = 80 m^{2}

= 80

80x^{2} = 80

x^{2} = 1 ⇒ x = 1 , -1

Since sides are always positive so x = 1

Base, b = 16x= 16 m

Height, h = 10 = 10 m
