# What is the Area of the Triangle Formed by the Points O (0, 0), a (6, 0) and B (0, 4)? - Mathematics

Short Note

What is the area of the triangle formed by the points O (0, 0), A (6, 0) and B (0, 4)?

#### Solution

The given triangle ΔOAB   is a right angled triangle, right angled at O. the co-ordinates of the vertices are O (0, 0) A (6, 0) and B (0, 4).

So,

Altitude is 6 units and base is 4 units.

Therefore,

ar ( ΔOAB ) = 1/2 (Base )( Altitude )

= 1/2 ( 4 ) ( 6 ) sq . units

= 12  sq . units

Is there an error in this question or solution?
