# Java program to find the area of a triangle

Java Programming Java8Object Oriented Programming

Area of a triangle is half the product of its base and height. Therefore, to calculate the area of a triangle.

• Get the height of the triangle form the user.
• Get the base of the triangle form the user.
•  Calculate their product and divide the result with 2.
• Print the final result.

## Example

import java.util.Scanner;
public class AreaOfTriangle {
public static void main(String args[]){
int height, base, area;
Scanner sc = new Scanner(System.in);
System.out.println("Enter the height of the triangle ::");
height = sc.nextInt();
System.out.println("Enter the base of the triangle ::");
base = sc.nextInt();
area = (height* base);
System.out.println("Area of the triangle is ::"+area);
}
}

## Output

Enter the height of the triangle ::
14
Enter the base of the triangle ::
5
Area of the triangle is ::70
