This tool calculates the area of a triangle using Heron’s formula.

## Instructions:

Enter the lengths of the three sides of a triangle (Side A, Side B, and Side C) into the input fields. After entering the side lengths, click the “Calculate” button to determine the area of the triangle using Heron’s formula.

## How it Works:

The area of a triangle can be calculated using Heron’s formula, which states that the area (A) of a triangle with sides of lengths a, b, and c is:

**A = √[s(s – a)(s – b)(s – c)]**

where s is the semi-perimeter of the triangle, calculated as:

**s = (a + b + c) / 2**

After calculating s, we can substitute the side lengths into the formula to find the area.

## Limitations:

- The input values must be positive numbers.
- The sum of any two sides must be greater than the third side to form a valid triangle.
