# What will be the Altitude of the Triangle? If

Area of a square with side x is equal to the area of a triangle with base x. The altitude of the triangle is:

- x/2
- x
- 2x
- 4x

**Answer: (3) 2 X**

**Explanation:-**

**Formula-**

** Area of a square = Side x Side**

Then, the area of a square = X x X

= X^{2}

Area of a square = Area of a triangle (Given in the question)

**Formula-**

** Area of a triangle = base x height / 2**

Then, base x height = X^{2} (According to the question)

X x height/2 = X^{2 (base – X is given in the question)}

Height = 2 x X^{2}/X

Height = 2 X

Hence, the altitude of the triangle is 2 X.
