Write a c program to find the area of a triangle

C program for area of a triangle

Formula of area of any triangle:

Area = √(s*(s-a)*(s-b)*(s-c))
Where s = (a + b + c)/2

C code:


int main(){
    float a,b,c;
    float s,area;
    printf("Enter size of each sides of triangle");
    s = (a+b+c)/2;
    area = sqrt(s*(s-a)*(s-b)*(s-c));
    printf("Area of triangle is: %.3f",area);
    return 0;

Sample output:

Enter size of each sides of the triangle: 2 4 5
Area of triangle is: 3.800

when i put 2 4 6 shows wrong answer
i.e., when s= even

thats not a valid tringle.....for a valid tringle {if(a+b>c && b+c>a && c+a>b)}

I missed a thing i.e your a(2)+b(4)is not greater then c(6)

Why you write %.3f

Unknown said...

three digits after decimal point.
Example : 3.800

If it was %.5f
It would have been - 3.80000
