Calculate another triangle




How did we calculate this triangle?

a = 15.5 ; ; b = 12.7 ; ; c = 3.2 ; ;

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

p = a+b+c = 15.5+12.7+3.2 = 31.4 ; ;

2. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 31.4 }{ 2 } = 15.7 ; ;

3. The triangle area using Heron's formula

T = sqrt{ s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 15.7 * (15.7-15.5)(15.7-12.7)(15.7-3.2) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 117.75 } = 10.85 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 10.85 }{ 15.5 } = 1.4 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 10.85 }{ 12.7 } = 1.71 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 10.85 }{ 3.2 } = 6.78 ; ;

5. 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{ 12.7**2+3.2**2-15.5**2 }{ 2 * 12.7 * 3.2 } ) = 147° 43'21" ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ a**2+c**2-b**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 15.5**2+3.2**2-12.7**2 }{ 2 * 15.5 * 3.2 } ) = 25° 56'52" ; ; gamma = 180° - alpha - beta = 180° - 147° 43'21" - 25° 56'52" = 6° 19'47" ; ;

6. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 10.85 }{ 15.7 } = 0.69 ; ;

7. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin( alpha ) } = fraction{ 15.5 }{ 2 * sin 147° 43'21" } = 14.51 ; ;

8. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 12.7**2+2 * 3.2**2 - 15.5**2 } }{ 2 } = 5.07 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 3.2**2+2 * 15.5**2 - 12.7**2 } }{ 2 } = 9.215 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 12.7**2+2 * 15.5**2 - 3.2**2 } }{ 2 } = 14.079 ; ;
