Simplest formula , when triangle has (0,0) as its one of its vertices then other two sides (a,b) and (c,d) are considered.

In our case ( 2,7 ) as (a,b) and (6,0) as (c,d).

then formula for triangle area is = |ad - bc | / 2 => | 0 - 42 | / 2 => 21.

Option D.

Elegant solution but you waste time during the exam, performing such process. However, it is not wrong at all, though.

\(A= \frac{b*h}{2}\)

\(\frac{7*6}{2} = \frac{42}{2} = 21\)

D is the answer
