    1) Height * base/2, works in any triangle, requires you know the height and base (duh). 2) Product of catheti, works only in right angled triangles, requires knowing either both catheti or one cathetus and an angle. 3) Side*side*sinus(angle between the sides), works in any triangle, requires knowing the sides and the angle between them 4) Heron's formula, works in any triangle, requires knowing each side All I can think of for now.
