## Formula Definition

The area of a right triangle can be calculated using the following formula: if you know the length of the base side and the height.

If you know the length of the base and height, you can calculate its area using the following formula:

$$"area" = (b * h) / 2 $$

$$b = "length of the base side"$$

$$h = "length of the hight"$$

It is a geometric figure with 3 sides and 3 vertices, the right triangle always have one 90º angle; also has 3 angles.

The right triangles will have always 3 sides and one right angle.

It is the space of the internal surface in a figure, it is limited for the perimeter. Also, the area can be calculated in a plane of two dimensions.

It is a representation of a rule or a general principle using letters. *( Algebra, A. Baldor)*

When describing formulas in plural, it is also valid to say "formulae".
