Hello everybody, welcome back! Here we learn how to find the area of a triangle when base and height of a triangle are given.

We calculate the area by multiplying base and height and dividing it with 2. `Area = ( base * height ) / 2`

We can also calculate area of triangle when all sides are given, using Heron’s formula. That can be found here.

#### Area of triangle – Code Visualization

#### Task :

To find the area of a triangle when base and height of a triangle are given.

#### Approach :

- Read
`base`

and`height`

of a triangle using`input()`

or`raw_input()`

- Multiply both
`base`

and`height`

and divide it with 2 `Area a = ( base * height ) / 2`

- Print the result.

#### Program :

b = float(input('Enter base of a triangle: ')) h = float(input('Enter height of a triangle: ')) area = (b * h) / 2 print('The area of the triangle is %0.2f' % area) |
