Hello everybody, welcome back! Here we learn how to find the area of a triangle when all the 3 sides of it are given.

First, we calculate semi-perimeter `s`

as sum of all sides divided by 2 then calculate the area using the formula `(s*(s-a)*(s-b)*(s-c)) ** 0.5`

#### Formulae :

Semi-perimeter : `s = (a + b + c) / 2`

Area = `(s*(s-a)*(s-b)*(s-c)) ** 0.5`

#### Task :

To find the area of a triangle when all 3 sides of a triangle are given.

#### Approach :

- Read three sides(a, b, c) of a triangle using
`input()`

or`raw_input()`

. - We calculate the semi-perimeter s as sum of all three sides divided by 2.
`s = ( a + b + c ) / 2`

- After calculating semi-perimeter, we calculate is area as square root of
`(s*(s-a)*(s-b)*(s-c))`

- For finding square root we can use a function called sqrt from math module or by using exponential operation, we discussed about both sqrt function and using exponential operation
- We use exponential operation here to calculate area.
`area = (s*(s-a)*(s-b)*(s-c)) ** 0.5`

- Finally, print the result.
