### Hero's (or Heron's) Formula (Used to Find the Area of a Triangle Given its Three Sides)

If you want to find the area of any triangle given three sides, then you can find the area using Hero's Formula (also known as Heron's Formula). This is an alternative to the conventional area formula in which you need to know the base and the height of the triangle.

Enter the side lengths of the triangle (positive numbers only):

a =

b =

c =
