# What is the area of triangle ABC?

Triangles are three-sided closed figures.

## Answer: The area of a triangle is the amount of space enclosed between the sides of the triangle. Area of ΔABC = 1/2 × Base × Height

Let us know the basics of the area of a triangle.

**Explanation:**

In the given triangle ΔABC,

Area of ΔABC= 1/2 × Base × Height = 1/2 × h × BC

If ABC is an equilateral triangle, Area of ΔABC = (√3/4)a^{2} where a is the length of a side of the equilateral triangle.
