Area = (1/2)(Base)(Height)

Remember that most triangles are 1/2 of a rectangle, so their area is 1/2 of the rectangle's.

Right triangles's area in half of the are of rectangle with height and width equals legs ( sides of the right angle).
   Accordingly the area of a regular triangle is half of the corresponding parallelogram with sides as 2 sides of
 a triangle.  

Comment

Area of a triangle = (1/2)*b*h where b is the base of the triangle and h is the height.

Comments

Area of a rectangle = b*h
