This Instructional Activity is a part of the Lesson 14, Unit 4, Grade 6. In this activity, students apply their knowledge of division of fractions to answer questions about bases and heights of triangles, which they studied earlier in the year. In the warm-up, students recalled how to find the area of a triangle given a pair of base and height. Here, they find a missing length given the area of a triangle and a fractional base or height.
