How can I make a program that solves the area of a triangle. I know how to prompt the user, but I just don't know how to implement the equation into a program.
What info do you prompt? Which sides, angles...?
Base and height.

If it's only base and height you could do this:

:Prompt B
:Prompt H
:Disp "Area = "+eval(0.5*B*H

The equation to find the area of a triangle is (1/2)*Base*Height

You could create 3 variables - one where you prompt for the base, another for the height, and the last one to store the answer to.

Example:

Code:

0->C
0->A
0->B
Disp "Height?
Prompt A
Disp "Base?
Prompt B
(.5*A*B)->C
Disp "Area:
Disp C
Stop


A=Height
B=Base
C=Area

Get it?
Thank you!
You could also do:

Code:

Input "HEIGHT?",A
Input "BASE?",B
Disp "AREA:",AB.5
