This is a C Program to find area of a right angled triangle.

This C Program calculates the area of a right angled triangle.

The formula used in this program are Area = (1/2) * height * width.

Here is source code of the C Program to Find the area of a right angled triangle.The C program is successfully compiled and run on a Linux system. The program output is also shown below.

/* * C Program to Find Area of a Right Angled Triangle */ #include <stdio.h> int main() { float height, width; float area; printf("Enter height and width of the given triangle:\n "); scanf("%f%f", &height, &width); area = 0.5 * height * width; printf("Area of right angled triangle is: %.3f\n", area); return 0; }

In this C program, library function defined in <math.h> header file is used to compute mathematical functions. We are reading the ‘height’ and ‘width’ of a triangle. To find the surface area, the following formulas is used.

Area = (1/2) * height * width.

Output: $ cc pgm24.c $ a.out Enter height and width of the given triangle: 10 15 Area of right angled triangle is: 75.000
