The area of a triangle can be calculated from its vertices by using a formula to find the distances between them. This allows for the calculation of the area of a parallelogram with the same base and height as the triangle. Then, this figure is divided by two.
Continue ReadingA triangle's vertices represent the points of the triangle on a grid, and are written as the x and y coordinates of each point. The points can be referred to as point A, point B and point C. The formula for calculating the area of such a triangle is as follows:
