# Python Program to Calculate the Area of a Triangle

Here’s an example Python code to calculate the area of a triangle:

```# Take input from the user
base = float(input("Enter the base of the triangle: "))
height = float(input("Enter the height of the triangle: "))

# Calculate the area of the triangle
area = 0.5 * base * height

# Print the area of the triangle
print("The area of the triangle is", area)```

In this code, we use the `input()` function to prompt the user to enter the base and height of the triangle. We convert the user input to a float using the `float()` function and assign them to the variables `base` and `height`.

Next, we calculate the area of the triangle using the formula `0.5 * base * height` and assign the result to the variable `area`.

Finally, we use the `print()` function to output the area of the triangle.

When you run this code, it should prompt you to enter the base and height of the triangle. Once you enter those values and press enter, it should output the area of the triangle. For example:

```Enter the base of the triangle: 5
Enter the height of the triangle: 8
The area of the triangle is 20.0```

Note that you can replace `5` and `8` with any other values you want to calculate the area of a triangle with a different base and height.
