To get the area it half breadth by height. A simplified thought on this is because the formula for the area of a parallelogram is length by width, and a triangle would be half of this

No, the area of a triangle is half the base multiplied by the perpendicular height. If the triangle has no perpendicular height, you can't use the length of a slanted side, watch out for that. Perpendicular lines meet like a capital T. At right angles. Instead, you could use 1/2absinC label each side of the triangle a,b and c. label each corner with the same three letters but capitals. label A the corner across from a label B the corner across from b and so on. find the sin of C using your calculator multiply one half by the measures of a,b and sinC

A triangle is a 2 dimensional object, it cannot therefore have a volume (which is a property of 3D objects.However, if you meant area, then it's half the base length multiplied by the height.
