# Heron's formula - math problems

The Heron's formula is used to calculate the contents of a general triangle using the lengths of its sides. Heron's formula states that the area of a triangle whose sides have lengths a, b, and c is:
$S=\sqrt{s\left(s-a\right)\left(s-b\right)\left(s-c\right)}$
, where
$s=\frac{a+b+c}{2}$
is the semiperimeter (half perimeter) of the triangle .
