The area of the triangle is A=hb/2. This is the mathematics formula to find out the area of the triangle. We can convert it to the C programming language.   First of all, understand the formula.

Area of the triangle A = hb/2.

A represents the area of the triangle.

h represents the height of the triangle.

b denotes the base of the triangle

Now, convert it to C programming language.

## Create a program to find out the area of the triangle in C language  -

We can use the math header files in the C program. To get the exact area of the triangle in the C program, you need to convert into C programming.

There are three variables like a,b, h.

a = Area of the triangle in the C program.

b= Base of the triangle in the C program.

h = Height of the triangle in the C program.

Let's create an example in C language -

#include <stdio.h>

#include<math.h>

int main()

{

float a;

float b=4.0;

float h=4.0;

a=h*b/2;

printf("Area of triangle= %.2f\n", a);

return 0;

}

Compile and execute the C program. You will get the area of the triangle as output.

Area of triangle= 8.00

The mathematics is the base of every programming to execute the code in right way.You are mentioned to find out the area of the triangle.

Let's understand with the steps -

1. Area of the triangle - A=bh/2.

2. Think about the variable in the formula . You must create the variables in the C programming language. There are three variables in that mathematics formula.

3. Declare three variables in the C program. We assign the data type with the variable in C language

float a;

float b;

float h;

4. Define the variable value.

b=4.5;

h=3.6;

6. Convert area formula in the C language.

a=h*h/2;

7. Print the value of a.

This is the way to find out the area of the triangle in the C programming language.
