Hey! can somebody help me doing this please? i will really appreciate it!

Write an application that reads the lengths of the sides of a triangle from the user. Compute the area of the triangle using Heron's formula (below), in which s represents half of the perimeter of the triangle, and a, b, and c represent the lengths of the three sides.

Area = sqrt(s * (s - a) * (s - b) * (s - c))

I wont tell you the code, but here is how you can do it

1. accept the parameters from the user: use BufferedReader

2. calculate s

3. use square root function in the math package.

it simple, you should not run into problems.
