Heron's formula is a formula that gives the area of a triangle given the lengths of its three sides. It is named after Heron of Alexandria, a Greek mathematician who lived in the 1st century AD.
The formula is:
A = sqrt(s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c))
where:
A is the area of the triangle
s is the semiperimeter of the triangle, which is half the sum of the lengths of the three sides
a, b, and c are the lengths of the three sides of the triangle

Heron's formula can be derived using trigonometry or geometry. It is a powerful formula that can be used to find the area of any triangle, regardless of its shape or size.

In the video I work through an example problem that will show you how to use Heron's formula.

I hope it helps.
