Area of a Triangle

The area of a triangle is equal to half its base times its height.

The height of a triangle is each of the perpendicular lines drawn from one vertex to the opposite side (or its extension).

Example

Find the area of the triangle:

Area of an Equilateral Triangle

Example

Calculate the area of an equilateral triangle with a side of 10 cm.

Area of a Right Triangle

The area of a right triangle equals half the product of the legs.

Example

Calculate the area of the right triangle with legs measuring 3 and 4 cm.

Semiperimeter

The semiperimeter of a triangle equals half the sum of its sides.

It is denoted with the letter s.

Heron's Formula

Heron's formula is used to find the area of a triangle knowing the length of all three sides.

Example

Find the area of the triangle with sides measuring 3, 4 and 5 cm.
