Area of Scalene Triangle
The total area of a scalene triangle is the area between the boundaries of the scalene triangle. A scalene triangle is a special type of triangle where all three sides of the triangle are of different lengths as well as the angles are of different measures. Although all the angles of a scalene triangle are different the sum of all the interior angles of the triangle is still 180 degrees. We will discuss the area of the scalene triangle, the formula for calculating the area along with the solved examples, and a few practice questions in the end.

What is the Area of Scalene Triangle?
The area of a scalene triangle can be defined as the amount of space covered by a flat surface inside the scalene triangle. It is measured as the "number of" square units (square centimeters, square inches, square feet, etc.).
Area of a Scalene Triangle Formula
The formula of the area of the scalene triangle is used to find the area occupied by the scalene triangle within its boundary. The area of the scalene triangle is obtained by taking half of the product of the base to the height of the triangle. Thus, the formula for the area of the scalene triangle, with a base "b" and height "h" is "(1/2) bh".
Or, Area of a Scalene Triangle = [(1/2) × base × height] square units
Calculation of Area of a Scalene Triangle
As the triangle has 6 quantities namely 3 sides and 3 angles, the area of a triangle is calculated via various formulas depending upon the known quantities of the triangle.

Area of Scalene Triangle With Base and Height
When the base and height of the scalene triangle is known, then the area of a triangle is:
Area of a triangle = (1/2) × Base × Height
where b and h are the base and height of the triangle respectively.

Area of Scalene Triangle Using Heron's Formula
Heron's formula is applicable when all three sides of the triangle are known to us.
Consider the triangle ABC with sides a, b, and c has shown in the image.
Heron’s formula is: \(\text{Area} = \sqrt{s(sa)(sb)(sc)}\)
where, a, b, c are the side length of the triangle, and, s is the semiperimeter and equals (a+b+c)/2.

Area of the Scalene Triangle With 2 Sides and Included Angle (SAS)
We can find the scalene triangle's area when the length of its two sides and the included angle are given.
1. When two sides b and c and included angle A is known, the area of the triangle is, Area = (1/2) bc × sin A
2. When sides a and c and included angle B is known, the area of the triangle is, Area = (1/2) ac × sin B
3. When sides a and b and included angle C is known, the area of the triangle is, Area = (1/2) ab × sin C

Area of a Scalene Triangle Formula Examples

Example 1: The height and base of a scalene triangle are 5 in and 8 in respectively. Find the area of the scalene triangle.
Solution:
Length of the base, b = 5 in
The height of the triangle is: h = 8 in
Area of the triangle = (1/2) × b × h
A = (1/2) × 5 × 8
⇒ A = 5 × 4
⇒ A = 20
Therefore, the area of the triangle is 20 square inches.

Example 2: Robert was given the two sides of the triangle and the corresponding angle between them as 14 units, 28 units, and 30 degrees respectively. Find the area of this triangle.
Solution:
The first side of the triangle, a = 14
The second side of the triangle, b = 28
The angle between the sides, C = 30 degrees
Using the area of the base is: Area (A) = (1/2) ab × sin C
A = (1/2) × 28 × 14 × sin 30º
⇒ A = (1/2) × 28 × 14 × (1/2)
⇒ A = 7 × 14
⇒ A = 98
So, The area of the given triangle is 98 squared units.
