@Vilakshan Gupta The answer I'm getting is \(\dfrac{60}{\sqrt 7}\), is that correct? What was your method?

If the altitudes of a triangle are \(h_1\), \(h_2\) and \(h_3\) respectively and let \(2 \mathbb{H} = \dfrac{1}{h_1} + \dfrac{1}{h_2} + \dfrac{1}{h_3}\), then

\[4 s^2 = \dfrac{\mathbb{H}}{ \left( \mathbb{H} - \frac{1}{h_1} \right) \left( \mathbb{H} - \frac{1}{h_2} \right) \left( \mathbb{H} - \frac{1}{h_3} \right) } \]
