    Sample sentence:
    Busco la traducción de la frase "Base por Altura" cuando se quiere calcular el área de un cuadrado y se multiplica la medida de la base por la medida de la altura.
    Muchas gracias.

    Hola Pizpierta:
    To find the area of a triangle, multiply the base by the height. EDIT #2 courtesy psicuntrinius: AND divide by 2.
    A ver si esta cita con imagen aparesca en el mensaje: EDIT: Nope, didn't work.

    cubaManía, la traducción es perfecta, PERO si es de un triángulo, es "multiply the base by the height AND DIVIDE BY TWO"...

    Oh, you are right psicutrinius. I'd better have someone check my figures when I measure for carpeting.:eek:
