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.
