Use the green dots to choose the shape of your triangle, then hit the green arrow. Now hit animate to see your triangle transformed into a rectangle. You can use the green back-arrow to choose a new triangle.
How do we find the area of a rectangle? Can we use this to help us find the area of a triangle? Hint: compare the height of the triangle with the width of the rectangle.
