10-120.

If the area of the triangle at right is $132$ cm$^{2}$, what is the height?

Use the equation for finding the area of a triangle.
$\text{Area} = \frac{1}{2} (\text{base})(\text{height})$

Substitute all the values that are known.

$132 = \frac{1}{2} (16)(\text{height})$
Now simplify and solve for height.
