The largest area of the triangle with the sides of 6 units and 13 units is 39 units squared.  indecision

Sorry to say, but this is wrong!!

 

Semi-perimeter is 18.5

 

Should be:      A = sqrt [18.5 (12.5)(5.5)(0.5)]  = 25.21780125

 

btw, the right triangle with sides of 6 and 13 has a larger area. smiley
