Area of a triangle is the region enclosed by it, in a two-dimensional plane. As we know, a triangle is a closed shape that has three sides and three vertices. Thus, the area of a triangle is the total space occupied within the three sides of a triangle. The general formula to find the area of the triangle is given by half of the product of its base and height.

## Triangle

The area of a triangle is defined as the total region that is enclosed by the three sides of any particular triangle. Basically, it is equal to half of the base times height, i.e. A = 1/2 × b × h. Hence, to find the area of a tri-sided polygon, we have to know the base (b) and height (h) of it. It is applicable to all types of triangles, whether it is scalene, isosceles or equilateral. To be noted, the base and height of the triangle are perpendicular to each other. The unit of area is measured in square units.Now, let’s see how to calculate the area of a triangle using the given formula. The area formulas for all the different types of triangles like an area of an equilateral triangle, right-angled triangle, an isosceles triangle are given below. Also, how to find the area of a triangle with 3 sides using Heron’s formula with examples.

The area of a triangle with 3 sides of different measures can be found using Heron’s formula. Heron’s formula includes two important steps. The first step is to find the semi perimeter of a triangle by adding all the three sides of a triangle and dividing it by 2. The next step is that, apply the semi-perimeter of triangle value in the main formula called “Heron’s Formula” to find the area of a triangle. We have seen that the area of special triangles could be obtained using the triangle formula. However, for a triangle with the sides being given, the calculation of height would not be simple. For the same reason, we rely on Heron’s Formula to calculate the area of the triangles with unequal lengths. (Source: byjus.com)
