Before proceeding to Heron’s formula let us recall the following formulas.
(known as circumference)
Watch the above table, If we want to find the area of a triangle whose base and height is known to us then the formula is . But if we want to find the area of a scalene triangle, then we can find it easily using Heron’s formula.
According to Heron’s formula, Area of a triangle = , where a,b,c are three sides of the triangle and s is the semi-perimeter or half-perimeter of the triangle.
Heron’s Formula can also be used to find area of a quadrilateral if sides and one diagonal are given. First divide the quadrilateral into two triangles, find their area using Heron’s formula and again add them.
My Self Subrat Dash. I have completed my MSc in Information Technology. Since last 12 years i am teaching Math and Computer at TTRC Computer Institute situated at Rayagada, Odisha, India.
I believe in conceptual learning, so i explain each and every concept with demos and examples, which makes it easier to understand.
