This worksheet focuses on three types of triangles to calculate their area: right, acute, and obtuse. The worksheet starts with an example problem that provides a step-by-step process for calculating the area, giving students a clear guide to follow for the other problems.

To calculate the area of any triangle, including obtuse, acute, and right triangles, you can use a simple formula: Area = 1/2 x base x height. It means you take the base of the triangle, which is one side of the triangle, and multiply it by the height, which is a straight line from the top to the base forming a right angle. Then, you divide the result by 2.
