This tool calculates the square footage of a triangle based on the input of its base and height.

## How to Use the Triangle Square Footage Calculator

To use the triangle square footage calculator, follow these steps:

- Enter the base length of the triangle in feet.
- Enter the height of the triangle in feet.
- Click the “Calculate” button to see the area of the triangle in square feet.

## How It Calculates the Results

The area of a triangle is calculated using the formula:

**Area = 0.5 × Base × Height**

When you enter the base and height values and click “Calculate,” the script multiplies the base by the height and then by 0.5 to give you the area in square feet.

## Limitations

- The calculator assumes that the base and height are input in feet.
- The calculator only works for right-angled and scalene triangles where the base and height are perpendicular.
- Ensure to input numerical values only to get an accurate calculation.
