How to divide a triangle into n equal area triangles ?

See Solution: Divide a triangle into n triangles

For any triangle its area can be calculated using the formula

**base * height/2**. So we can divide a triangle into n triangles of equal area by simply dividing the base into n equal parts.**Explanations :**

For example to divide the triangle in the image below into 4 equal triangles, we can simply divide its base of 8cms to 4 equal parts of 2cms each and form the 4 triangles of equal area.
