Area of a Triangle  =  ½ · base· height

 

Using 15 for the base and 8 for the height (because they are perpendicular), 

the area is:  ½ · 8· 15  =  60

 

Now, using 17 for the base and x for the height, and we know that the area of the triangle is 60:

     60  =  ½ · 17· x

     60  =  8.5 · x

     7.06  =  x  (approximately)  (using common fractions, the height is  120/17)
