The picture shows one method of converting a triangle to a rectangle. Draw two verticals perpendicular to the base from the midpoints of the two sides. The little triangle that is outside the vertical line just drawn will fit into the space above the same side to fill in a rectangle. The resulting rectangle will have half the base of the triangle and its full height.
