# area of the right triangle. code example

## Example 1: area of a right angle triangle

```
#include <stdio.h>
int main(){
float h, b, A;
printf("What is the Height and base of the triangle: \n");
scanf("%f %f", &h, &b);
A = 0.5 * b *h;
printf("Area is %f\n", A);
}
```

## Example 2: how to find the area of a triangle

```
#this is the code to find the area of a parrelogram and triangle
#change the numbers to select what height and base your shape is
b = 3 #b is base
h = 3 #h is height (middle)
t = 5 #this is the base of the triangle
i = 5 #and this is the height
p = t*i #dont touch this
print("this is the area of the parrelogram")
print(b * h)
m = input("do you want to calculate a triangle? (space before answer)")
print(m)
if m == " yes":
print ("this is the area of the triangle that you inputed")
print (p/2)
else:
print("ok")
```
