Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[s= (9+12+15)/2 =18 now by heron's formula Area=\sqrt{18* (189) (1812)(1815)}\] \ [\sqrt{18*9*6*3} = \sqrt{2916} = 54 therefore your area is 54

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Commo'n the formula is there, the quantities are given. Now can't you multiply and take the square root by yourself

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0See the formula is \[Area = \sqrt{s(sa)(sb)(sc)}\] where \[s= {a+b+c \over 2}\] where a , b, c are the length of the sides of the triangle. First find s. then substitute to get your Area ??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Ok first you would have to take out the s that is semi perimerter formula for s is S= (a +b +c)/2 here the S is 18 Area of triangle is \[A=\sqrt{s*(sa)*(sb)*(sc)}\] So the area would be now \[A=\sqrt{18*(189)*(1812)*(1815)}\] \[A=\sqrt{18*5*6*3}\] \[A=\sqrt{2916}\] A=54 Therefore the area of triangle is A=54 which is your answer
