## Python Basic: Exercise-30 with Solution

Write a Python program that will accept the base and height of a triangle and compute the area.

Python: Area of a triangle

A triangle is a polygon with three edges and three vertices. It is one of the basic shapes in geometry. A triangle with vertices A, B, and C is denoted triangle ABC.

• Vertex of a triangle: The point at which two sides of a triangle meet.
• Altitude of a triangle: The perpendicular segment from a vertex of a triangle to the line containing the opposite side.
• Base of a triangle: The side of a triangle to which an altitude is drawn.
• Height of a triangle: The length of an altitude. Sample Solution:-

Python Code:

``````b = int(input("Input the base : "))
h = int(input("Input the height : "))

area = b*h/2

print("area = ", area)
```
```

Sample Output:

```Input the base : 20
Input the height : 40
area =  400.0
```
