Area of any Triangle
The Formula for the Area of any Triangle
Derive the formula for the area of any triangle
Area of triangle is given by½bh, whereby b is the base of the triangle and h is the height of the given triangle. Consider the illustrations below:
From the figure above, we see where the base and height are located.
Applying the Formula to find the Area of any Triangle
Apply the formula to find the area of any triangle
Example 1
The base of a triangle is 12cm long. If the corresponding height is 7cm, find the area of the triangle.
Solution
Consider the figure below:
The area of a triangle is given by½bh.
Area =½×12cm×7cm
Area = 42cm2
Therefore area of a triangle is 42cm2
Example 2
The lengths of two sides of a triangle are 6cm and 8cm. Find the area of a triangle if the included is
Solution:
Consider the triangle below, name it triangle ABC.
The area of a triangle above is given by½b×h
So, Area = ½× 8cm× 6cm × sin 45°
=24cm2× sin45°
= 16.97cm2
Therefore the area of ABC = 16.97cm2

  1. Excellent blog you have here but I was wondering if you knew
    of any community forums that cover the same topics talked about in this article?
    I’d really like to be a part of community where I
    can get suggestions from other knowledgeable people that share the same
    interest. If you have any recommendations, please let me know.
    Thanks a lot!

  2. Have you ever thought about including a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is valuable and everything. Nevertheless think of if you added some great graphics or videos to give
    your posts more, “pop”! Your content is excellent but with
    pics and clips, this blog could definitely be one of the greatest in its field.

    this, suppose you added a little content? I ain’t suggesting your
    content isn’t good, but what if you added a headline that
    grabbed people’s attention? I mean TOPIC 2: AREA AND PERIMETER ~ MATHEMATICS FORM 4 | DUKARAHISI is a
    little vanilla. You could look at Yahoo’s home page and watch how they
    create article titles to get viewers interested. You
    might add a video or a related picture or two to
    grab readers excited about what you’ve written. Just my opinion, it might bring your website a little
    livelier. asmr 0mniartist
