In 6th Grade Geometry, it can be difficult for students to solve for the missing dimension of a triangle when the area is given. To overcome this challenge, math teachers can help them by providing “Solve for missing dimension of a triangle given area practice problems”. It will help the student to develop problem-solving skills.

For example, if the area of the triangle is 24 square units and the base is 6 units, then A=½*bh becomes 24=½*6*h, which simplifies to 24=3h and the final answer is 8=h by dividing both sides by 3. Therefore, the height of the triangle is 8 units.
