**The Mystery of the Devil’s Triangle**

**(Heron’s Formula)**

A mystery, that’s what we think it is. The Devil’s Triangle, also called the Bermuda Triangle, is an area in the western north Atlantic approximately bounded by imaginary lines drawn between Bermuda, Puerto Rico, and the tip of Florida. It is where ships and planes mysteriously disappear. This is a video showing an essence point which acts as a wormhole inside the triangle.

There were no recorded successful attempts of measuring how big the triangle is. The very simple reason for this is that sailors and pilots who tried to cross the boundaries of the triangle just disappear without a trace. So therefore, what they’ve discovered about the triangle are brought with them as they disappear.

What if we try to find the area of the Devil’s triangle?

We have already been familiar with the simplest formula used in finding the area of a triangle but since we don’t exactly know what type of a triangle the Devil’s triangle is, we can use* HERON’S FORMULA*. This formula can find the area of a triangle using only the measurement of its three sides.

where: A= Area of the triangle

a,b,c=are the sides of the triangle

For example:

**Given:**

Let’s say the Bermuda Triangle has sides:

a = 129 km

b= 131 km

c = 91 km

**Formula**:

**Now, Let us solve:**

**Answer:**

This formula can be used for as long as the length of the sides of the triangle are given. Nice work, Math Detectives!

**{s(s-129)(s-131)(s-91)}/2**
