Draggable Heron formula

The Heron formula is a mathematical formula that calculates the area of a triangle, given the lengths of all three sides. The formula is named after Hero of Alexandria, a Greek mathematician who discovered it. The formula is:

√(s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c))

where 's' is the semi-perimeter of the triangle, which is equal to (a+b+c)/2, and 'a', 'b', and 'c' are the lengths of the three sides. The Heron formula is a useful tool for solving problems involving triangular shapes in geometry and trigonometry.
