    Haven't you already posted this and haven't I already given you an answer that you expressed your satisfaction with?

    Since the height is just the horizontal length between the midpoint of BC and A then (because those points lie on the same horizontal line) the height is given by the difference in the x-coordiantes, so 7-2 = 5
