COMMENTS

If a, b, c, d are consecutive odd primes configured as a cyclic quadrilateral, then Brahmagupta's formula K = sqrt((a+b+cd)(a+bc+d)(ab+c+d)(a+b+c+d))/16 means that K^2 will always be an integer. The only cyclic quadrilateral with consecutive prime sides starting with side 2 has a rational squared area of 3003/16.

FORMULA

Area K of a cylic quadrilateral with sides a, b, c, d is given by Brahmagupta's formula K = sqrt((sa)(sb)(sc)(sd)) where s = (a+b+c+d)/2.


EXAMPLE

a(2)=960 because cyclic quadrilateral with sides 3,5,7,11 has squared area = (3+5+711)(3+57+11)(35+7+11)(3+5+7+11)/16 = 960.


MATHEMATICA

lst = {}; Do[{a, b, c, d} = {Prime[n], Prime[n+1], Prime[n+2], Prime[n+3]}; A2=(a+b+cd)(a+bc+d)(ab+c+d)(a+b+c+d)/16; AppendTo[lst, A2], {n, 1, 100}]; lst
