Enter the 3 sides of a triangle into the calculator. The calculator will evaluate and display the area using heron’s formula.

Heron’s Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the area of a triangle.

area = 0.25 * √((a + b + c) * (-a + b + c) * (a – b + c) * (a + b – c))

  • Where a, b, and c are the lengths of the sides of the triangle.

Heron’s Formula Defintion

Heron’s formula states that the area of a triangle can be calculated using the 3 lengths of the side of that triangle.
