Triangle whose sides are each greater than 100 cm but whose area is less than 1 sq. cm.

What happened to this problem?

Is such a triangle possible?

Yes of course. Take this example. A side with 200cm as the base and the rest 2 sides of 100 cm each. The area will be zero. (Collinear points) No very slightly decrease the biggest side from 200cm and the are will start increasing from 0 cm2 Shashwat Gupta · 2 years, 4 months ago
