Veronica made a triangle by taking an 8 1/2 × 11 sheet of paper and putting a dot at the top. She then drew lines from the bottom corners to the dot and cut along the lines (see diagram).

Note that an 8(12)×11 sheet of paper is measured in inches.
The area of a triangle with base b and corresponding height h is given by: A=(12)bh
Substitute b=8.5 in. and h=11 in.: A=(12)(8.5)(11)
A=46.752

Number of distinct right triangles formed by connecting vertices of a unit cube.
Suppose we have a unit cube in R 3 .
We want to count the total number of distinct right triangles formed by connecting vertices of the unit cube. I can see that the total number of right triangles simply on a face of the cube will be 4 and since there are 6 faces we have 4 × 6 = 24 right triangles on the faces alone. Of course there are others across the cube's diagonals. I think the total will be 48, due a symmetry across the diagonals, but am not entirely sure of my reasoning here, so I may be wrong.

The area A of a triangle is given by bab sin 0, where a and b are the lengths of two sides and O is the angle between these sides. Suppose that a = 5, b = 10 and 0 = . (a) Find the rate at which A changes with respect to a if b and 0 are held constant. (b) Find the rate at which A changes with respect to 0 if a and b are held constant. (c) Find the rate at which b changes with respect to a if A and O are held constant.
