b=8h=17

The area of a triangle is equal to 12 the base times the height.

12⋅(base)⋅(height)

Substitute the values of the base b=8 and height h=17 into the formula for the area of a triangle.

12⋅8⋅17

Factor 2 out of 8.

12⋅(2(4))⋅17

Cancel the common factor.

12⋅(2⋅4)⋅17

Rewrite the expression.

4⋅17

4⋅17
