# What is the area of the triangle?

Triangles are three-sided closed figures.

## Answer: The area of a triangle is the amount of space enclosed between the sides of the triangle.

The area of a figure is the region enclosed by that figure.

**Explanation:**

The area of a triangle is equal to half the product of the altitude of a triangle and the base of a triangle.

In the given triangle ΔABC,

Area of ΔABC = 1/2 (h × BC)

BC is the base and h is the height of the triangle.
