A triangular region is bounded by the two coordinate axes and the line given by the equation 2x + y = 6. What is the area of the region, in square units?

So this is a RIGHT triangle ('bounded by the coordinte axes")

y intercept is where x = 0 y = 6

x intercept is where y= 0 x = 3

so the base is 3 and the height is 6 and it is a right triangle

AREA = 1/2 base * height Can you take it from here?
