area of triangle = half area or rectangle.
so , area of rectangle = 1/2 * 16 = 8m2

When a triangle and rectangle lie on the same base and between same parallel lines then the area of triangle will be half of the area of the rectangle.
so , the area of triangle = 1\2area of the rectangle.
area of triangle = 16\2
area of triangle = 8cm²
