## How to Find the Area of an Equilateral Triangle?

The area of an equilateral triangle can be found if one of the side length is known. As all sides and angles of an equilateral triangle are equal, the area of an equilateral triangle is given by :

\(Area = { \sqrt{3} \over 4} × (side)^2\)

**Solved Example:**

Find the area of an equilateral triangle whose side length is 3 units.

**Solution: **

Substituting the value in the given formula:

### Area of equilateral triangle = \({ \sqrt{3} \over 4} × (3)^2\)

= 0.43 × 9

= 3.897 square units.

Therefore the area of the equilateral triangle is 3.897 square units.

Now use the calculator to find the area of equilateral triangles whose side lengths are:

- Side length = 5 units
- Side length = 13 units
