# What is the measure of the base of a triangle that has a height of 8 centimeters and an area of 24 square centimeters?

Since they've given use the area of the triangle, we can use the area formula to find the base of the triangle.

The measure of the base of the triangle can be calculated using the formula for the area of a triangle:

[ \text{Area} = \frac{1}{2} \times \text{base} \times \text{height} ]

Given that the area of the triangle is 24 square centimeters and the height is 8 centimeters, we can rearrange the formula to solve for the base:

[ 24 = \frac{1}{2} \times \text{base} \times 8 ]

[ 24 = 4 \times \text{base} ]

[ \text{base} = \frac{24}{4} ]

[ \text{base} = 6 ]

Therefore, the measure of the base of the triangle is 6 centimeters.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.

- Cups A and B are cone shaped and have heights of #32 cm# and #12 cm# and openings with radii of #5 cm# and #6 cm#, respectively. If cup B is full and its contents are poured into cup A, will cup A overflow? If not how high will cup A be filled?
- A pyramid has a base in the shape of a rhombus and a peak directly above the base's center. The pyramid's height is #3 #, its base's sides have lengths of #7 #, and its base has a corner with an angle of #(5 pi)/6 #. What is the pyramid's surface area?
- A solid consists of a cone on top of a cylinder with a radius equal to that of the cone. The height of the cone is #42 # and the height of the cylinder is #1 #. If the volume of the solid is #195 pi#, what is the area of the base of the cylinder?
