    The area of large sail is 144 square feet

    Solution:

    The measure height of the large sail = 24 feet

    The measure of base of the sail = 12 feet

    We know that,

    The sail of the sailboat is in the form of right angle triangle

    The area of triangle is given as:

    Area = \frac{1}{2} \times base \times height

    Substituting the values we get,

    Area = \frac{1}{2} \times 12 \times 24\\\\Area = 6 \times 24\\\\Area = 144\ ft^2

    Thus the area of large sail is 144 square feet
