## (Python Example for Citizen Data Scientist & Business Analyst)

Write a Python program that will accept the base and height of a triangle and compute the area.

**Python: Area of a triangle**

A triangle is a polygon with three edges and three vertices. It is one of the basic shapes in geometry. A triangle with vertices A, B, and C is denoted triangle ABC.

- Vertex of a triangle: The point at which two sides of a triangle meet.
- Altitude of a triangle: The perpendicular segment from a vertex of a triangle to the line containing the opposite side.
- Base of a triangle: The side of a triangle to which an altitude is drawn.
- Height of a triangle: The length of an altitude.

**Sample Solution**

**Python Code:**

Sample Output:

Input the base : 20 Input the height : 40 area = 400.0
