The largest triangle inscribed within a rectangle. Has its base equal to the length of the rectangle and height of the triangle is equal to the breadth of the rectangle.

Area = (½)*l*b

Area of largest triangle inscribed in a rectangle = (½)*l*b

Program to calculate the area of the largest triangle inscribed in a rectangle −

## Example Code

#include <stdio.h> int main(void) { int l = 10, b = 9; float area ; area = (float)((l*b)/2); printf("Area of largest triangle inscribed in a rectangle of length %d and breadth %d is %f",l,b,area); return 0; }

## Output

Area of largest triangle inscribed in a rectangle of length 10 and breadth 9 is 45.000000
