The Area of a Triangle Based on the Base and Height calculator computes the area of a triangle given the length of the base (b) and height (h).
INSTRUCTIONS: Choose units and enter the following:
- (b) Length of Base of Triangle
- (h) Height of Triangle
AREA (A): The calculator returns the area in square meters (m
2). However, this can be automatically converted to other area units (e.g. square feet) via the pull-down menu.
The Math / Science
The formula for the area of triangle is:
`A = 1/2 * b * h`
- A = area of triangle
- b = length of the base
- h = vertical height
