A triangle has a base that is two more than three times the length of its height. The area of the triangle is square cm. What are the base and height of the triangle?

Refer to problem 4-47 and use a method similar to the
5-D process to create an expression for the area of the triangle. Draw a diagram.

Based on the information from the problem, first define the height and base of the triangle with a variable.

Since you know the area of a triangle,  construct a 5-D chart to run trials and solve for .
