Enter the Length of Side : 5 Area of Equilateral Triangle : 10.82 |

## Properties of Equilateral Triangle :

- Equilateral triangle is a triangle in which all three sides are equal .
- All angles are of measure 60 degree
- A three-sided regular polygon

## Formula to Calculate Area of Equilateral Triangle :

## Explanation of Program :

First of all we have to find the value of Root 3 / 2. So we have used following statement to compute the value.

1 |
r_4 = sqrt(3) / 4 ; |

Now after computing the value of the Root 3 by 2 we have multiplied it by Square of the side.

1 |
area = r_4 * side * side ; |
