Where b stands for the base of the triangle, and h stands for the height of the triangle.

You are usually given the values of h and b, but if you are not given, you can easily measure them out.

To get the value of b, measure the base of the triangle.

To get the value of h, draw and measure a perpendicular line from the triangle base to the opposite peak.

Area of a triangle is measured in meter or centimeter squared.    Search for Google images Select a recommended image
