The **area of a triangle** can be calculated using the formula:

A = (1/2) * b * h

where:

- A is the area of the triangle in square units

- b is the length of the triangle’s base in units

- h is the height of the triangle in units. Height is always perpendicular to the base.

** area of a triangle** equals the total of the space found within the triangle. Area is measured in square units with the SI unit of measurement is **meters squared.**

The **height of a triangle** is the perpendicular distance from the vertex to the base of the triangle. It can be calculated using the formula:

height = (2 * area of triangle) / base

where:

- height is the height of the triangle
- area is the area of the triangle
- base is the length of the base of the triangle
