Heron's formula + The Law of Cosines - math problemsThe 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:
is the semiperimeter (half perimeter) of the triangle .

- Quadrilateral oblique prism
What is the volume of a quadrilateral oblique prism with base edges of length a = 1m, b = 1.1m, c = 1.2m, d = 0.7m, if a side edge of length h = 3.9m has a deviation from the base of 20° 35 ´ and the edges a, b form an angle of 50.5°.
- Find the area
Find the area of the triangle with the given measurements. Round the solution to the nearest hundredth if necessary. A = 50°, b = 30 ft, c = 14 ft
