Following program shows you how to calculate triangle area.
This program gets triangle base and height from user and calculates area and prints it using following formula
Area = base X height / 2

#include <iostream>
#include <math.h>

int main() {
    float triangleBase;
    float triangleHeight;

    std::cout << "Enter the base of triangle:";
    std::cin >> triangleBase;

    std::cout << "Enter the height of triangle:";
    std::cin >> triangleHeight;

    float areaOfTriangle = (triangleBase * triangleHeight) / 2;

    std::cout << "Area of triangle is: " << areaOfTriangle;


Enter the base of triangle: 22
Enter the height of triangle: 33
Area of triangle is: 363
