Python Program to Calculate the Area of a Triangle

Here in this program, we will tell you about how to calculate the area of triangle and display it. If x, y and z are the three sides of a triangle. Then,


s = (x+y+z) / 2
area = √(s(s-a)*(s-b)*(s-c))


Input

# Python Program to find the area of triangle a = 5 b = 6 c = 7 # Uncomment below to take inputs from the user # a = float(input('Enter first side: ')) # b = float(input('Enter second side: ')) # c = float(input('Enter third side: ')) # calculate the semi-perimeter s = (a + b + c) / 2 # calculate the area area = (s*(s-a)*(s-b)*(s-c)) ** 0.5 print('The area of the triangle is %0.2f' %area)

Output

The area of the triangle is 14.70

Conclusion: Here by using Heron's formaula, we calculate the area of triangle. But, to calculate the area of a triangle you can use input() function as well.
