Usually called the "side angle side" method, the area of a triangle is given by the formula below. Although
it uses the trigonometry Sine function, it works on any triangle, not just
a and b are the lengths of two sides of the triangle
C is the included angle (the angle between the two known sides)
Use the calculator above to calculate the area of a triangle given 2 sides and the angle between them.

... I have a small favor to ask. Over the years we have used advertising to support the site so it can remain free for everyone.
However, advertising revenue is falling and I have always hated the ads. So, would you go to Patreon and become a patron of the site?
When we reach the goal I will remove all advertising from the site.
It only takes a minute and any amount would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you for considering it! – John Page
