Exercise 1: Calculating Area

This is a basic exercise on defining a class that helps calculate the area of a triangle.

Problem Statement

Let’s start with a very basic example.

Write a class called Triangle having two public variables for length and height and one member function called area which will return the area of the right angle triangle. You can calculate the area of a triangle using

Area=1/2(length)(height)Area = 1/2(length)(height)


two variables (integer or float) as the dimensions of the triangle


area of that triangle
