            // the integral types because the math I'm doing will involve division,
            // which may mean we'll end up with fractional values, which can't be
            // stored in an integer type.
            // The double or decimal type provide a higher range and more accuracy,
            // at the expense of taking up more space. Between the three, in this
            // particular case, it probably doesn't matter what you choose.

            // The length of the base of the triangle.
            float b = 2;

            // The height of the triangle.

            // Do the math.
            float area = 0.5f * b * h;

            // Display the results.
