This area will form a  right riangle

 

We can find one leg as follows

 

6  = (1/2)x     multiply both sides by 2

 

12  = x

 

The other leg  = 6

 

And the area of a right triangle =    product of the legs / 2   =

 

[ 12 * 6 ] /   2      =

 

72  / 2  =

 

36 units^2

Do you have to sign up in Desmos to share a graph link? I tried to share one, but even when I plotted points on the graph, the URL was still https://www.desmos.com/calculator. (The link brought me to a empty graph)

PartialMathematician,

 

Yes, I believe you do have to sign up to share graphs with others. It is free.
