**The base of a rectangle is 16cm**** ****and area is $80c{m}^{2}$**** ****.What is the height?**

The height of the rectangle is 5cm

Base of the rectangle$b=16cm$

Area of the rectangle $A=80c{m}^{2}$.

If b is the base of the reactangle and h is the height of the rectangle.

Then, the area of the rectangle is $A=b\times h$

Put the value of base and area into the formula and find the height.

Area of the rectangle :

$\begin{array}{c}80=16\times h\\ h=\frac{80}{16}\\ =5cm\end{array}$

Therefore, the height of the rectangle is 5cm.
