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=s(sa)(sb)(sc)
, where
s=a+b+c2
is the semiperimeter (half perimeter) of the triangle .
