KOONA

thank you

The general form to calculate the triangle is:

square root of (s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c))

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

and a,b and c are the sides of a given triangle.

Other areas for special triangles are generalized form of this form.

Hope this helped you to some extent.

base x height

then divide by two

Answers are correct for right triangles and equallateral only.
