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?
When x = 0, y = 8 ---> the height of the triangular region is 8.
When y = 0, x = 4 ---> the width of the trianglular region is 4.
Use the formula for the area of a triangle: Area = ½ · width · height to get the area of the region.
