Calculate the area and centroid of a triangle with vertices at (1,2), (3,4), and (5,6)

Calculate the Area:
Area =|x1(y2 - y3) + x2(y3 - y1) + x3(y1 - y2)|
2

Area =|1(4 - 6) + 3(6 - 2) + 5(2 - 4)|
2

Area =|1(-2) + 3(4) + 5(-2)|
2

Area =|-2 + 12 + -10|
2

Area =|0|
2

Area = 0

The formula for the centroid of a triangle is denoted below:
x1 + x2 + x3
