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?   cheeky
