    a= base times height divided by 2. ex 6 times 8 is 48 divided by 2 is 24.

    we can have also this formula. K = √(𝑠(𝑠 βˆ’π‘Ž)(𝑠 βˆ’π‘)(𝑠 βˆ’π‘)) where s = 1/2(π‘Ž+𝑏 +⁑〖𝑐)γ€—

    i wonder if tat formula even made sense to einstein. Im sure with his smartness he would be smart enough to use the easier formula

    actually, i am not negating or discouraging you to use your formula. I know that is the formula that everyone knows. The question is whats the formula to find the area of a triangle? so, is it bad to give formulas?

    well in theory, u r supposed to give the easiest one . less confusing. So maybe u shuld just say. that formula always works with ease and is simple

    i just want to no how tat theory makes sense. use the example . base is 6 height is 7 what is the area

    yes you are right to use that base time height divided by 2.

    see, not all areas of triangles can be solved by the basic formula.
