The area of a triangle is $\frac{1}{2}bh$, where b is the length of the base and h is the height. $\frac{1}{2}bh\longrightarrow$ substitute the given values =$\frac{1}{2}(2.1\times10^3)(4.2\times10^2)\longrightarrow$ multiply the digit terms and add the exponents. =$\frac{1}{2}(8.82\times10^5)\longrightarrow$ multiply =$4.41\times10^5$
