I did it this way.

Area= 0.5 *base*height

We have no clue about the third side. It may not be an integer.
We just know that: 2<third side<14

But there are so many values that c can take even in this range.


Let's work with the options:

1) Area= 2= 0.5 *b*h
b*h= 4

2) b*h= 24

3) b*h= 48

There are many possible values that can result in these products.
So I selected all three.

Does this make sense?



How is area of 2 possible here?


Any value above 0 to 24 is possible; please see the above explanations thoroughly for better understanding.
If the triangle is like a straight line with the angles really small and height is just a very small fraction then we can get the area nearly 0; making 2 a possible option.
