## Answers ( )

• Area of the triangle = 48 cm

• It’s height is grater than the base

by 4.

• Base of the triangle

Let the base be

x cm.Given that,

• Its height is greater than its base by 4.

Then, the height of the triangle will be

=

(x +4) cm(By splitting Middle Term)Or,

Here, remember thatbase can’t be negative. Therefore, base of the triangle will be

8 cm.━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━━

Answer:Base is 8

Step-by-step explanation:1/2*b*(b+4)=48

b*(b+4)=96

b² +4b=96

From here you can solve quadratic or put value, so put a value which can take nearer to 96 so I took 8 and it will satisfy the equation.
