The formula for finding the area of a triangle is , where

*b*is the length of the base and*h*is the height of the triangle. Suppose you know the area and height of the triangle, but need to find the length of the base. In this case, solving the formula for*b*would be helpful. Solve the area formula for*b*, then write a sentence describing how to find the base of a triangle given the area and height.
