A triangle with these dimensions is not possible. As the sum of two sides of a triangle must be greater than the third side, which is not true in this case. So, the area is zero.

i can prove that the area of triangle is 0 using the heron's formula as you given . as s = 3 when we subract 3 from 3 we get 0. where s is a + b + c/2
