It depends what you have.

If you have the other two sides' lengths then you can use the Pythagorean theorem; 

a^2 + b^2 = c^2

 where c is the hypotenuse and a&b are the other sides (including the height)

 lets say a is the height

Then subtract (base length)^2 from the (hypotenuse)^2

Then find the square root of that answer.

in equation form

a^2=c^2-b^2
