The equation is $A=h * 1/2h$ The solution is $8$

Work Step by Step

First, we need to know the area formula, which is A = l*w. Now, the questions said that "w" is half of it's "h" (the l in the equation). w = 1/2h Put this with "w" in the area formula. $A = h * 1/2h$ The second part of the problem is to ask for the area of the picture with a height of 4in. Replace 4 with all of the "h" value. A = 4 * 1/2(4) Solve we will have: A = 4 * 2 And the answers will be: $A = 8 in.$
