# Area of Triangle simple syntax errors

Posted 15 March 2012 - 09:00 AM

I think I'm missing something obvious but cannot seem to figure this out.

```def main():
import math
a = eval(input("What is a?"))
b = eval(input("What is b?"))
c = eval(input("What is c?"))
s = (float(a+b+c)/2
y = math.sqrt(x)
x = math.sqrt(s * (s - a) * (s - B)/> * (s - c))
print("The area of the triangle is.")
print("x,y")

main()
```

I keep getting invalid syntax errors wherever I try to do. I know I'm missing something really easy just cant figure it out.

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

You have an open parentheses on line 6.
