Both base and height of the sail is 40 1/2 feet. A sail is triangular in shape. Finding the area of a triangle is multiplying its base and height and dividing the product by 2. A = 1/2 bh Area = 40 1/2 or 40.50 sq. ft Since base and height are equal. 40.50 x 2 = 81 bh = 81 bh = 81 ÷ 2 b = 40 1/2 ft h = 40 1/2 ft
