using the formula , area of triangle

large =frac{1}{2}left | x_1(y_2-y_3)+(y_3-y_1)+x_3(y_1-y_2)right |

The area of the triangle formed by the vertices A(-8,-2), B(-4,-6) and C(-1, 5) is given by

                                         large frac {1}{2}left [ -8(-6-5)-4(5+2)-1(-2+6) right ]

                                       large =frac {1}{2}left [ -8(-11)-4(7)-1(4) right ]

                                      large =frac {1}{2}left [88-28-4 right ] = frac{56}{2}= 28: sq : units

My experience with Abhyas is very good. I have learnt many things here like vedic maths and reasoning also. Teachers here first take our doubts and then there are assignments to verify our weak points.
