A triangular region is bounded by the two coordinate axes and the line given by the equation 2x + y = 8 . What is the area of the region, in square units?

Since we have a triangle

 

When  x = 0 , y = 8 ⇒   this is the height of the triangle

 

When y = 0, x =  4  ⇒  this is the base of the triangle

 

Area =  (1/2) base * height =   

 

(1/2) (4) (8)   =

 

16 units^2
