# C++ Program to Calculate Area of Triangle

In this C++ Programming tutorial we will see a Program to Calculate Area of Triangle in C++ Programming language. We will accept the height and base values from user and apply the formula of **Area of triangle** : **(1/2)*Base*Height**.

##### Program to Calculate Area of Triangle in C++

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 | #include <iostream> using namespace std; int main() { int height, base; float ans; //ans may come in fractions cout<<"Enter height and base : "; cin>>height>>base; ans= (0.5)*height*base; //area of triangle formula cout<<"Area of triangle is : "<<ans; return 0; } |

Output

Enter height and base : 6 8

Area of triangle is : 24

Area of triangle is : 24
