# Copy of Triangle Area Action!!! (V1)

In the applet below, [color=#38761d][b]a triangle is shown[/b][/color]. [br][br]You can change the sizes of the [b][color=#1e84cc]blue angle[/color][/b] and [color=#ff00ff][b]pink angle[/b][/color] by using the sliders in the lower-left corner. You can also move the white points anywhere you'd like at any time. [br][br]Interact with the applet below for a few minutes.[br]Then answer the questions that follow.
##### 1.
In this applet's dynamics, the triangle was transformed into another figure. What kind of figure is it? How does the applet imply your classification is correct?
##### 2.
How does the [b]area of the newer figure[/b] compare with the [b]area of the original triangle[/b]?
##### 3.
How does the [b]BASE [/b]of the newer figure compare with the [b]BASE[/b] of the original triangle?
##### 4.
How does the [color=#9900ff][b]HEIGHT[/b][/color] of the newer figure compare with the [color=#444444][b]HEIGHT[/b][/color] of the original triangle?
##### 5.
Given your responses to (1) - (4) above, describe how you can find the area of [b][color=#38761d]ANY TRIANGLE. [/color][/b]
