# TriangleArea - Evaluate the area of any triangle given its sides

``````' evaluate the area of a triangle
' given its three sides

Function TriangleArea(side1 As Double, side2 As Double, _
side3 As Double) As Double
' this function uses the Heron formula
Dim halfP As Double
' evaluate half of the perimeter
halfP = (side1 + side2 + side3) / 2
TriangleArea = Sqr(halfP * (halfP - side1) * (halfP - side2) * (halfP - _
side3))
End Function``````
