# What is the formula for finding the area of a triangle?

Triangles are three-sided closed figure

## Answer: The simplest formula for finding the area of a triangle = 1/2 × base × height

The area of a triangle is the amount of space enclosed between the sides of the triangle

**Explanation:**

Other formulas for finding the area of include:

Heron's formula to find the area of the triangle = √s(s−a)(s−b)(s−c)

where, s is the semi perimeter of the triangle = (a+b+c)/2
