76 Geometry The height of a triangle is 4 times its base. Write a formula for the area and graph it. Find the area of the triangle whose base is 3 units. Words The area of a triangle is equal to one-half the product of its base and height. Variables. Equations Area is equal to one-half the product of its base and height A =

77 The equation is. Since the variable b has an exponent of 2, this function is nonlinear. Now graph. Since the base cannot be negative, use only positive values of b. b (b, A) (0, 0) (0.5, 0.5) (1, 2) (1.5, 4.5) (2, 8) (2.5, 12.5)

78 By looking at the graph, we find that for a base of 3 units, the area of the triangle is 18 square units.
