How to use a triangle calculator?

You might be wondering where you can find the missing side of a Triangle side calculator
This right triangle solver can calculate various values for a triangle including sides. It lets the user choose the option and then asks for the available values. To calculate area of a triangle, follow the below steps:

  • Select the option for which you want to calculate the value. i.e., area, base, perimeter, etc.
  • Choose the set of given values from the drop down menu.
  • Enter the given values in the respective input boxes.
  • You can change the unit of measurement from given options.
  • Press the Calculate button after entering the values.

You can calculate the area, base, or height of a triangle. You can calculate the centroid of triangle using our centroid triangle calculator.

What is a Triangle?

According to Wikipedia
“A triangle is a polygon with three edges and three vertices. It is one of the basic shapes in geometry. A triangle with vertices A, B, and C is denoted by ∆ ABC.”
It further states that:

“In Euclidean geometry any three points, when non-collinear, determine a unique triangle and simultaneously, a unique plane.”
In the below diagram, A, B, and C are the edges while a, b, and c are the vertices of triangle ABC.

There are several types of triangles and some of those are:

•    Equilateral
•    Isosceles
•    Right-angled triangle
•    Scalene
•    Obtuse

Area of triangle formula

Here we will list various methods to calculate the area of a triangle using different equations.
When base and height are known
If the base b and height h of the triangle are given, its area can be calculated by using the following formula:
Area of triangle = ½ × b × h
• When three sides are known (SSS)
You can use Heron’s formula if all three sides of a triangle are known.
Area = 0.25 × √ ((a + b + c) × (-a + b + c) × (a - b + c) × (a + b - c))
• When two sides and an angle are known (SAS)
When two sides of a triangle and the angle between them is known, Use the following equation to find the area,
Area = 0.5 × a × b × sin (γ)
• When two angles and a side are known (ASA)
If two angles and a line between them are known, the area of triangle can be calculated using the above 45 45 90 triangle calculator or the below equation.
Area = a² × sin (β) × sin (γ) / (2 × sin (β + γ))
Note: The above equations contain several trigonometric values. You can use our scientific calculator to evaluate the trigonometric values.

How to calculate the area of a triangle?

Looking for detailed guide on calculating the area of triangle?
To calculate the triangle area, follow the below steps:

•    Identify and write down the given values.
•    Write down the triangle area formula.
•    Substitute the given values and calculate the area.

Example 1:
Calculate the area of a triangle having base 5 cm and height of 9 cm.
Solution:
Step 1: Identify and write down the given values.
b = 5 cm, h = 9 cm
Step 2: Write down the triangle area formula.
Area of triangle = ½ × b × h
Step 3: Substitute the given values and calculate the area.
Area of triangle = ½ × 5 × 9
Area of triangle = 22.5 cm2
So, the area of a triangle with base 5 cm and height 9 cm is 22.5 cm2.
