Calculate another triangle


How did we calculate this triangle?

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

a = |BC| = |B-C| ; ; a**2 = (B_x-C_x)**2 + (B_y-C_y)**2 ; ; a = sqrt{ (B_x-C_x)**2 + (B_y-C_y)**2 } ; ; a = sqrt{ (-3-(-9))**2 + (3-0)**2 } ; ; a = sqrt{ 45 } = 6.71 ; ;

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

b = |AC| = |A-C| ; ; b**2 = (A_x-C_x)**2 + (A_y-C_y)**2 ; ; b = sqrt{ (A_x-C_x)**2 + (A_y-C_y)**2 } ; ; b = sqrt{ (0-(-9))**2 + (-3-0)**2 } ; ; b = sqrt{ 90 } = 9.49 ; ;

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

c = |AB| = |A-B| ; ; c**2 = (A_x-B_x)**2 + (A_y-B_y)**2 ; ; c = sqrt{ (A_x-B_x)**2 + (A_y-B_y)**2 } ; ; c = sqrt{ (0-(-3))**2 + (-3-3)**2 } ; ; c = sqrt{ 45 } = 6.71 ; ;
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 = 6.71 ; ; b = 9.49 ; ; c = 6.71 ; ;

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

p = a+b+c = 6.71+9.49+6.71 = 22.9 ; ;

5. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 22.9 }{ 2 } = 11.45 ; ;

6. The triangle area using Heron's formula

T = sqrt{ s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 11.45 * (11.45-6.71)(11.45-9.49)(11.45-6.71) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 506.25 } = 22.5 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 22.5 }{ 6.71 } = 6.71 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 22.5 }{ 9.49 } = 4.74 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 22.5 }{ 6.71 } = 6.71 ; ;

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{ b**2+c**2-a**2 }{ 2bc } ) = arccos( fraction{ 9.49**2+6.71**2-6.71**2 }{ 2 * 9.49 * 6.71 } ) = 45° ; ; b**2 = a**2+c**2 - 2ac cos beta ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ a**2+c**2-b**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 6.71**2+6.71**2-9.49**2 }{ 2 * 6.71 * 6.71 } ) = 90° ; ;
 gamma = 180° - alpha - beta = 180° - 45° - 90° = 45° ; ;

9. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 22.5 }{ 11.45 } = 1.96 ; ;

10. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin alpha } = fraction{ 6.71 }{ 2 * sin 45° } = 4.74 ; ;

11. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 9.49**2+2 * 6.71**2 - 6.71**2 } }{ 2 } = 7.5 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 6.71**2+2 * 6.71**2 - 9.49**2 } }{ 2 } = 4.743 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 9.49**2+2 * 6.71**2 - 6.71**2 } }{ 2 } = 7.5 ; ;
