Program Description

Write a java program to calculate the area of triangle. The area of triangle of base b , and height h is calculated using the mathematical formula:


Area of Triangle = \frac{ base * height}{ 2}



Area of Triangle Java Program


Java Program

The Java program prompts the user to enter base and the height of the triangle.

It computes the area of the triangle using the formula.

import java.util.Scanner;
/***************************************************************** * * @program : Java program to calculate the area * @web : * @version : 1.0 ******************************************************************/
public class AreaOfTriangle
{ public static void main(String args[]) { Scanner s= new Scanner(; System.out.println("Enter the width of the Triangle:"); double b= s.nextDouble(); System.out.println("Enter the height of the Triangle:"); double h= s.nextDouble(); //Area = (width*height)/2 double area=(b*h)/2; System.out.println("Area of Triangle is: " + area); }



Program Output

Enter the width of the Triangle:
Enter the height of the Triangle:
Area of Triangle is: 1462.5
