Suppose we are given the area of a triangle. Let A. We have to find the tree sides a,b,c. No need to be the unique answer. s=(a+b+c)/2 A=s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) How to find a,b,c?

Heron's formula: A = $\displaystyle \sqrt{s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c)}$ for an equilateral triangle in which a=b=c c = $\displaystyle \sqrt { \dfrac{4A}{\sqrt 3 } } $
