# The sides of a triangle are 56 cm, 60 cm and 52 cm long. Then the area of the triangle is

a. 1322 cm²

b. 1311 cm²

c. 1344 cm²

d. 1392 cm²

**Solution:**

Given, the sides of a triangle are 56 cm, 60 cm and 52 cm long.

We have to find the area of the triangle

Given, a = 56 cm

b = 60 cm

c = 52 cm

By __Heron’s formula__,

Area of triangle = √s(s - a)(s - b)(s - c)

Where s= semiperimeter

s = (a + b + c)/2

Now, s = (56 + 60 + 52)/2

= 168/2

s = 84 cm

Area of triangle = √[84(84 - 56)(84 - 60)(84 - 52)]

= √[84(28)(24)(32)]

= √[12 × 7 × 7 × 4 × 12 × 2 × 16 × 2]

= 12 × 7 × 2 × 2 × 4

= 12 × 7 × 4 × 4

= 12 × 7 × 16

= 1344 cm²

Therefore, area of triangle is 1344 cm²
