A = 1/2 * B * H formula for area of a triangle

question states that the base B is doubled and

H is cut in half

A = 1/2 (2B) (1/2H)

A = B (1/2H)

A = 1/2 * B * H

the are of the triangle stays the same no change

This is a simple question from an online college course that someone feels the need to go to the internet to obtain an answer for. If they look up the formula, substituted numbers in the formula and compared the results for themselves, they would have the answer.

The method of going to the internet to obtain an answer is both lazy and academically dishonest.
