## anonymous 4 years ago A triangle has vertices at (2, 3), (½ , –2), and (– 3, 2). What is the area of the triangle? please show me the steps

$Area \ of \ \triangle =\frac{1}{2}[x_1(y_2-y_3)+x_2(y_3-y_1)+x_3(y_1-y_2)]$

(1) plot the vertices, so thet there will be a concrete visualization of the figure. (2) using distance formula, find the length of each side. (3) using heron's formula in finding the area of the triangle given the length of the three (3) sides, you can find the area. |dw:1328865265082:dw| A, b, c, pertains to the measure or the length of each side. is you find s, proceed on the area.|dw:1328865319476:dw| i can only tell the process. .
