## Step 1:

I know that I say this every time, but the most important thing you need to know when learning how to find the area of a triangle is the formula.

The formula is 1/2(b x h)

B stand for base, and H stands for height.

## Step 2:

This is where you actually do some math.

In my example, I will be assuming that the triangle's base is 5 inches and the height 5 inches.

Take the formula, 1/2(b x h), and once you exchange the b and the h for the actual numbers, it should look like this, 1/2(5x5).

## Step 3:

Times the 2 numbers in the middle of the parenthesis and you get 25, now divide that by 2, and you have your answer!

If you do your math, this should equal 12.5

## Step 4: Conclusion
