# Python program to find area of triangle (given base and height)

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

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.

#### Output :
