Accepted Solution

A:

Answer:The area of the large sail of the sailboat is 144 feet² .Step-by-step explanation:Given as :The measure height of the large sail = 24 feetThe measure of base of the sail = 12 feetThe area of the sail = A feet²Now, Since The sail of the sailboat is in the form of right angle triangleSo, From The area right angle triangleArea of right angle Triangle = [tex]\frac{1}{2}[/tex] × height × baseArea = [tex]\frac{1}{2}[/tex] × height of the sail × base of sailOr, A = [tex]\frac{1}{2}[/tex] × 24 × 12Or , A = [tex]\frac{288}{2}[/tex]∴ A = 144 feet²So, the area of sail = 144 feet²Hence The area of the large sail of the sailboat is 144 feet² .
