The question was: A triangle has vertices(-2,1)(5,1)aand(0,6). what is it's area? I came up with 42 units square, am I right?Answer by Earlsdon(6287)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!If you were to graph this triangle, you would see that the base (b) is 7 units and the height (h) is 5 units, so its (not it's) area can be found using the formula for the area of a triangle: square units.
