# Area of a Triangle Calculator

This app is a simple and useful tool which will calculate the area of a given triangle. The area of a triangle calculator is equal to the base x height.

### Area

There are multiple different equations for calculating the area of a triangle, dependent on what information is known. Likely the most commonly known equation for calculating the area of a triangle involves its base, b, and height, h. The "base" refers to any side of the triangle where the height is represented by the length of the line segment drawn from the vertex opposite the base, to a point on the base that forms a perpendicular.

Another method for calculating the area of a triangle uses Heron's formula. Unlike the previous equations, Heron's formula does not require an arbitrary choice of a side as a base, or a vertex as an origin. However, it does require that the lengths of the three sides are known. Again, in reference to the triangle provided in the calculator, if a = 3, b = 4, and c = 5: (Source: www.calculator.net)

### Calculator

Area is a quantity that describes the size or extent of a two-dimensional figure or shape in a plane. It can be visualized as the amount of paint that would be necessary to cover a surface, and is the two-dimensional counterpart of the one-dimensional length of a curve, and three-dimensional volume of a solid. The standard unit of area in the International System of Units (SI) is the square meter, or m.

A rectangle is a quadrilateral with four right angles. It is one of the simplest shapes, and calculating its area only requires that its length and width are known (or can be measured). A quadrilateral by definition is a polygon that has four edges and vertices. In the case of a rectangle, the length typically refers to the longer two edges of the quadrilateral, while the width refers to the shorter of the two edges. When the length and width of a rectangle are equal, the shape is a special case of a rectangle, called a square. The equation for calculating the area of a rectangle is as follows: (Source: www.calculator.net)
