### Area of a Triangle

Sometimes, we may not know the height of a triangle. In order to find the area in this situation, we can use trigonometry.

You may be familiar with the formula $\dfrac{1}{2} \times base \times height$ for finding the area of a triangle. We can also use trigonometry, which does not rely on explicitly knowing the height.
