# Maths help coordinate geometry and triangles please watch

1. How can I find the area of a triangle with the coordinates: Point A (5/2,0)
B (-5,0) C (-10,10)???
Is the formula 1/2 b x h only for right angled triangles or any triangle? Im so confused on how I can work this out because I dont even know if its a right angled triangle. Someone please help me???
