### How to find the area of a triangle?

There are three sets of area of triangle worksheets.

• Area of right triangles
• Area of acute triangles
• Area of obtuse triangles

To find the area of a triangle, you can use the following formula:

A = (1/2)bh

Where:

• A is the area of the triangle.
• b, the base is the length of the side of the triangle on the bottom.
• h, The height is the perpendicular distance from the base to the opposite vertex.

Here are the steps to calculate the area of a triangle:

1. Measure the length of the base, which is one of the sides of the triangle.
2. Measure the height, which is the perpendicular distance from the base to the opposite vertex. Ensure that this measurement forms a 90-degree angle with the base.
3. Use the formula A = (1/2)bh.
Multiply the base by the height, and then divide the result by 2 to calculate the area.

Example:
Find the area of a triangle with a base of 8 units and a height of 6 units.
A = (1/2)bh
A = (1/2)(8)(6)
A = 24 square units

So, the area of the triangle is 24 square units.
