#### Exercise 43

Write a simple **Python program** that **prompts** the** user** to **input** the **height** and **base** of a given **triangle** and returns the **area** of the triangle.

#### Solution

To calculate the area of the triangle, we will use the formula: area = 0.5 * base * height

# Get user input for the height and base of the triangle height = float(input("Enter the height of the triangle: ")) base = float(input("Enter the base of the triangle: ")) # Calculate the area of the triangle area = 0.5 * base * height # Print the result print("The area of the triangle is:", area)

When you **run** this **program** and **enter** the **values** for **height** and **base**, it will **calculate** the **area **of the triangle and display the **result** in the **console**. Note that we’re using the **float()** function to** convert** the **user input** from **strings** to **float numbers**, which allows us to perform mathematical operations on them.
