The second sentence is not needed.

Draw the triangle. Compute the side lengths

s1=AB= sqrt ((bx-ax)^2+(by-ay)^2 )

= sqrt ( 13^2 + (-14)^2 )= sqrt (169+256)=20.6

and do that for all sides. Then knowing the sides, calculate the perimeter, divide by 2. Let that be p.

Area=sqrt (p(p-a)(p-b)(p-c))

Or you can do it here
