Hero's Formula
Posted:
Sep 30, 2005 2:52 AM


Hope that everyone knows about Hero's Formula:
A = sqr[s(sa)(sb)(sc)] where s = (a+b+c)/2 sqr[] is the square root function
i've tried this formula by using a = 2, b = 3 and c = 5
the results was an error, as s will be 5 and sc = 0 and squaring root of 0 is an error
comments?
