This C program calculates the area of a triangle using the formula: area = 0.5 * base * height.

## Problem statement

Write a C program to find the area of a triangle using the given base length and height.

## C Program to Find the Area of a Triangle

#include <stdio.h> int main() { printf("Program to calculate the area of a triangle\n"); float base, height; printf("Enter the base length of the triangle: "); scanf("%f", &base); printf("Enter the height of the triangle: "); scanf("%f", &height); float area = 0.5 * base * height; printf("The area of the triangle is: %f\n", area); return 0; }

## How it works

- The program starts with an introduction message.
- It declares two variables:
`base`

and`height`

to store the base length and height of the triangle, respectively. - It prompts the user to enter the base length of the triangle.
- The user enters the base length, which is read using the
`scanf`

function and stored in the variable`base`

. - It prompts the user to enter the height of the triangle.
- The user enters the height, which is read using the
`scanf`

function and stored in the variable`height`

. - The program calculates the area of the triangle using the formula
`area = 0.5 * base * height`

and stores the result in the variable`area`

. - Finally, it displays the area of the triangle using the
`printf`

function.
