An interesting SAT math triangle problem

This is my first foray into making videos on solving interesting SAT problems.

I saw an SAT math problem at College Confidential which essentially says this:

"A triangle has two sides of length 6 and 7. Which of the following could the area of the triangle possibly be?"

And then it gives three choices and ask which of the choices the triangle's area can be.

What do you think? Do you find it helpful?
