# Area of Triangles

You know that Area = base x height / 2, but what other ways are there to find the area of a triangle? Brace yourself for some potent formulae.

Which has the greater area:

A: A square with side lengths of \(x.\)

B. A triangle with base length \(x\) that is twice as tall as it is wide.

An equilateral triangle has a base length of 4. What is its area?

One way to find the area of a triangle is to use the Sine Rule: Area = \(\frac{1}{2}ab \sin{C}.\) In the formula, \( a \) and \( b \) are the adjacent sides to any angle angle \( C \) of the triangle.

If \(\text {sin }\angle HUT\) is \(\frac{1}{2},\) what is the area of \(\triangle HUT?\)
