Instructions: Calculate and print the area of a triangle given the length of each side using

**Heron's Formula**

.

1. Create a new Python project 2. Import the math library 3. Prompt the user to enter the length of the three sides of a rectangle as integer 4. Calculate the area of the triangle using the following formula:

*√*

**where**

*a*

**,**

*b*

**, and**

*c*

** are the lengths of the sides, and**

*s*

** = ½ the perimeter**

NOTE: To get the square root of a number, use the function

**sqrt()**

defined in the

**math**

library

**.**

This function will take a positive number and return a number.

The area of the triangle with sides

**X, Y, **

and

** Z **

is

** A**

5. Print a message to the screen similar to below: Once written, test your program with the following values. b = 5 b = 4 c = 3 a = 56 b = 67 c = 12 a = 34 b = 94 c = 51 If you run into problems, use only calculates valid results.

**pdb**

to trace your program and determine why your program runs incorrectly. Once you have found the reason, use assert statement(s) to ensure your program

**6. Ask the TA to check your work.**
