Introduction to Area of an Obtuse Triangle Calculator

The area of an obtuse triangle can be calculated by multiplying its base and height, and then taking half of that value. In this formula, A represents the area of the obtuse triangle, base is the length of one of the sides of the triangle, and height is the perpendicular distance from the base to the opposite vertex. The result is expressed in square units, based on the units used for base and height (e.g., square meters, square feet).

Parameter usage:

The base and height must be greater than zero.


This calculator takes into account the base and height of an obtuse triangle and outputs its area. It is not specific to a particular unit of measurement.
