How to Calculate the Area of a Triangle with Base and Height?

## Triangle Area Calculation with Base and Height

Area of the triangle can be found by multiplying the half of base length
with the vertical height. In a triangle, base and height is
perpendicular to each other.

Here is the simple step by step tutorial to find area of a triangle.

**Formula**:

**Area of a Triangle = 1/2 x b x h**

**Step 1:** Let us assume an example to calculate the area of the triangle.

Consider a triangle, with the

Vertical height = 8 m

Base = 6 m

**Step 2:** Substitute the values in the formula,

Area of a Triangle = 1/2 x b x h

=1/2 x 6 x 8

= 1/2 x 48

= 48 / 2 = 24 m^{2}

Area of a triangle = 24 m^{2}
