Calculate another triangle




How did we calculate this triangle?

1. We compute side a from coordinates using the Pythagorean theorem

a = | beta gamma | = | beta - gamma | ; ; a**2 = ( beta _x- gamma _x)**2 + ( beta _y- gamma _y)**2 ; ; a = sqrt{ ( beta _x- gamma _x)**2 + ( beta _y- gamma _y)**2 } ; ; a = sqrt{ (0-3)**2 + (7-2)**2 } ; ; a = sqrt{ 34 } = 5.83 ; ;

2. We compute side b from coordinates using the Pythagorean theorem

b = | alpha gamma | = | alpha - gamma | ; ; b**2 = ( alpha _x- gamma _x)**2 + ( alpha _y- gamma _y)**2 ; ; b = sqrt{ ( alpha _x- gamma _x)**2 + ( alpha _y- gamma _y)**2 } ; ; b = sqrt{ (-2-3)**2 + (-1-2)**2 } ; ; b = sqrt{ 34 } = 5.83 ; ;

3. We compute side c from coordinates using the Pythagorean theorem

c = | alpha beta | = | alpha - beta | ; ; c**2 = ( alpha _x- beta _x)**2 + ( alpha _y- beta _y)**2 ; ; c = sqrt{ ( alpha _x- beta _x)**2 + ( alpha _y- beta _y)**2 } ; ; c = sqrt{ (-2-0)**2 + (-1-7)**2 } ; ; c = sqrt{ 68 } = 8.25 ; ;


Now we know the lengths of all three sides of the triangle and the triangle is uniquely determined. Next we calculate another its characteristics - same procedure as calculation of the triangle from the known three sides SSS.

a = 5.83 ; ; b = 5.83 ; ; c = 8.25 ; ;

4. The triangle circumference is the sum of the lengths of its three sides

p = a+b+c = 5.83+5.83+8.25 = 19.91 ; ;

5. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 19.91 }{ 2 } = 9.95 ; ;

6. The triangle area using Heron's formula

T = sqrt{ s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 9.95 * (9.95-5.83)(9.95-5.83)(9.95-8.25) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 289 } = 17 ; ;

7. Calculate the heights of the triangle from its area.

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 17 }{ 5.83 } = 5.83 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 17 }{ 5.83 } = 5.83 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 17 }{ 8.25 } = 4.12 ; ;

8. Calculation of the inner angles of the triangle using a Law of Cosines

a**2 = b**2+c**2 - 2bc cos( alpha ) ; ; alpha = arccos( fraction{ a**2-b**2-c**2 }{ 2bc } ) = arccos( fraction{ 5.83**2-5.83**2-8.25**2 }{ 2 * 5.83 * 8.25 } ) = 45° ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ b**2-a**2-c**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 5.83**2-5.83**2-8.25**2 }{ 2 * 5.83 * 8.25 } ) = 45° ; ; gamma = arccos( fraction{ c**2-a**2-b**2 }{ 2ba } ) = arccos( fraction{ 8.25**2-5.83**2-5.83**2 }{ 2 * 5.83 * 5.83 } ) = 90° ; ;

9. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 17 }{ 9.95 } = 1.71 ; ;

10. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin( alpha ) } = fraction{ 5.83 }{ 2 * sin 45° } = 4.12 ; ;
