Given the formula Area (A ) = (1/2)bh

Solve for b:-

A = (1/2)bh

Multiply each side by 2

2A = bh

Divide each side by h

2A /h = bh /h

2A /h = b

b = 2A /h

The value of b:-

When A = 160 and h = 20

Substitute the value of A and h in b = 2A /h

b = 2(160) /20

b = 320 / 20

b = 16 miters

I hope it helps ! If you like this answer please select as best answer , thanks !
