Treat the hypotenuse as base now apply the area of triangle formula as (base * height)/2
=> 11*6/2
=> 33 cm^2 answer Aug 27, 2016
Are you sure ?
Is something wrong with my ans, would you like to correct it?
I'm am sorry. I should have hinted earlier. It's a trick question. I will drop a hint: The triangle is on Euclidean plane.

33 sq cm should be the answer. answer Aug 28, 2016
As I had commented earlier, the answer is not straightforward and the question has got a trick hidden. Best of luck ! :)

The area of a triangle is 1/2 ( base x height)
Then Area = 1/2 ( 11 x 6 ) = 33 cm2 answer Sep 1, 2016 by anonymous
As I have commented earlier, this is a trick question. If you need any further hints kindly PM me or add a comment after this. Best of luck !

Easy peasy! 33 cm^2 is correct. answer Sep 4, 2016
I think that is not the answer as per the above comments.
