Finding the Area of a Triangle
In this tutorial, I will be showing you how to find the area of a triangle.
To get the area of a triangle, you multiply the base by the height, then multiple it by 1/2. In short, the formula is A = (1/2) x (base) x (height) OR A=(1/2)BH
Here is an example problem: If a triangle has a base of 3 and a height of 12, what is the area of that triangle?
The formula for the area of a triangle is A=(1/2)xBxH
The base and height are given to you in this problem, so all you have to do is plug the information given into the formula:
A=(1/2) x (3) x (12)
Solve for the area now:
36 x (1/2) = 18
You should get an answer of 18
