* c means side opposite to C.
Triangle ABC
Now there is a term 'half perimeter' which is denoted by " s " in this formula.


And finally the formula is given as:


Special Features:

* You do need to calculate height of triangle using complex geometric calculations.
* You just have to put the given sides in the formula and get the answer.
