If you don't have access to heron's formula, then you can use law of sines

sin a/9 = sin b/10 = sin c/11

c = 180-(a+b)

work on that a while and you will find sin b = .8578

Now, h/9 = sin b

so h = 9 sin b

area = 1/2 * 11 * 9 * .8578 = 42.46

Heron's formula says that

with s = (a+b+c)/2

area = sqrt(15*4*5*6) = 42.43

looks good to me.
