## Question

Lab 1 – Triangle
What: a java file containing your solution
In this lab, you will learn about variables, arithmetic, assignments, basic input-output, and built-in mathematical functions in java.
Problem: Three points on a plane determine a triangle, this could be a degenerate triangle. You need to determine the area, perimeter and heights of this triangle.
1/ Describe how you want to solve this problem: write this description as a comment at the top of your java file. The description should be free of typos and grammatically correct.
2/ Put together a Java code that addresses the above problem. Each instruction of your code should be commented to explain what it does and why the whole piece of code is an actual solution to the above problem.
