Notice that, since 0 < sin? <= 1 for 0° < ? <= 90°:
(1/2)ab(0) < (1/2)absin? <= (1/2)ab(1)
==> 0 < (1/2)absin? <= (1/2)ab.

maximum area is (1/2)ab
when ?=90

We know that the area of a triangle with sides ‘a’ and ‘b’ is A = ½ abcosq.

If we consider A’ to be maximum area of the triangle then the angle is 90° or ½ abcosq = 0.

i.e., when q =90°, the triangle has maximum area.(triangle is a right triangle)

The condition is opposite for minimum area, cosq =90° or angle q =0°.
