    nice problem!
    remember that the sum of any two sides of a triangle has to be greater than the third side, so let's try the possible 3 numbers that have a sum of 8.

    6 1 1 - no
    5 1 2 - no
    5 2 1 - no
    4 1 3 - no
    4 2 2 - no
    4 3 1 - no
    3 1 4 - no
    3 2 3 - yes
    any others would simply be permutations of the above.

    area = √(4(1)(1)(2))
    = 2√2
