triangle area calculator - step by step calculation, formula & solved example problem to find the area for the given values of base b, & height h of triangle in different measurement units between inches (in), feet (ft), meters (m), centimeters (cm) & millimeters (mm). In geometry, A triangle is shape whose three sides are all the same length then it is called as equilateral triangle whereas two of its three sides the same length is called as isosceles. A triangle whose sides are all of different lengths is called as scalene. The formula, solved example & step by step calculations may useful for users to understand how the input values are being used in triangle area calculations. Also this featured calculator uses the various conversion functions to find the triangle area in SI or metric or US customary units.

Triangle & its Formula

The following mathematical formula is used in this this calculator to find the area of a triangle for the given input value of base b, & height h.

formula to find triangle area

Solved Example

The below solved example problem may be useful to understand how the values are being used in the mathematical formulas to find the triangle area.

Example Problem :
Find the area of a triangle having the base b = 18 & height h = 12 cm?

Solution :
The given values
base b = 18 cm
height h = 12 cm

Step by step calculation
formula to find area = (1/2) b h
= (1/2) x Base x Height
substitute the values
= (1/2) x 18 x 12
= 108 cm2

The area of a triangle may required to be calculated in SI or metric or US customary unit systems, therefore this triangle area calculator is featured with major measurement units conversion function to find the output values in different customary units such as inches (in), feet (ft), meters (m), centimeters (cm) & millimeters (mm) by using this below conversion table.

10 mm = 1 cm
100 mm = 3.93 in
1000 mm = 3.28 ft
1000 mm = 1 m
1 cm = 10 mm
10 cm = 3.93 in
100 cm = 3.28 ft
100 cm = 1 m
1 ft = 3048 mm
1 ft = 304.8 cm
1 ft = 12 in
10 ft = 3.048 m
1 in = 25.4 mm
1 in = 2.54 cm
100 in = 8.33 ft
100 in = 2.54 m

In the field of area & volume calculations, finding the area of triangle is very important to understand the basic calculations. The above formulas, step by step calculation & solved example may helpful for users to understand the how to perform such calculation manually, however, when it comes to online to perform quick calculations, this triangle area calculator may be useful to find the results.
