## Area of a triangle

A triangle is a three-sided polygon.To find the area of a triangle, multiply the base by the height, and then divide by 2. The division by 2 comes from the fact that a parallelogram can be divided into 2 triangles.

The area of a triangle can be found by multiplying the base times the one-half the height.
