The area of a triangle is a numerical characteristic characterizing the size of a plane limited by a geometric figure formed by three segments (sides) that connect three points (vertices) that do not lie on one straight line.
A triangle is a geometric figure formed by three segments that connect three points that are not lying on one straight line. The segments are called the sides of the triangle, and the points are the vertices of the triangle.
Area - is a numerical characteristic characterizing the size of a plane bounded by a closed geometric figure.
Area is measured in units of measurement squared: km2, m2, cm2, mm2, etc.
