# How to calculate area of triangular plot

Suppose a triangular plot with no angle equal to 90 degree. This is not a right angle triangle.

Point 1 – Compute the triangle’s half permiter and name it “s”.

s = (a + b + c)/2

Point 2 – utilize s in the subsequent formula

Area = √(s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c))

Suppose a triangle having sides (a = 12 m, b = 22 m and c = 16 m)

Putting values in the formulas

s = (12 + 22 + 16)/ 2 = 50/2 = 25 m

Area of plot = √(s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c))

Area of plot = √(25(25-12)(25-22)(25-16))

Area of plot = √8775

Area of plot = 93.7 m^{2}
