%N A triangle with three consecutive primes as sides has an area that is a prime after rounding. The sequence gives the first of the three consecutive primes.

%F Simply use the formula for the area of a triangle given the three sides.

%e For sides 5,7,11 the formula gives 12.96 and with rounding this becomes 13, a prime.
