I can imagine a high school student trying to derive a formula for the area of a triangle given the vertices (x1, y1, ..., x3, y3) and coming up with a similar looking monstrosity. But I'm also seeing x4, y4, ... , x6, y6 there... do you happen to remember the meaning of your symbols?<br /><br />And no, even if you have an answer I'm not going to bother checking whether the formula is correct :DRobertnoreply@blogger.com
