Calculate another triangle




How did we calculate this triangle?

a = 3.8 ; ; b = 4.1 ; ; c = 5.2 ; ;

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

p = a+b+c = 3.8+4.1+5.2 = 13.1 ; ;

2. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 13.1 }{ 2 } = 6.55 ; ;

3. The triangle area using Heron's formula

T = sqrt{ s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 6.55 * (6.55-3.8)(6.55-4.1)(6.55-5.2) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 59.58 } = 7.72 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 7.72 }{ 3.8 } = 4.06 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 7.72 }{ 4.1 } = 3.77 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 7.72 }{ 5.2 } = 2.97 ; ;

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{ a**2-b**2-c**2 }{ 2bc } ) = arccos( fraction{ 3.8**2-4.1**2-5.2**2 }{ 2 * 4.1 * 5.2 } ) = 46° 23'29" ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ b**2-a**2-c**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 4.1**2-3.8**2-5.2**2 }{ 2 * 3.8 * 5.2 } ) = 51° 22'25" ; ; gamma = arccos( fraction{ c**2-a**2-b**2 }{ 2ba } ) = arccos( fraction{ 5.2**2-3.8**2-4.1**2 }{ 2 * 4.1 * 3.8 } ) = 82° 14'6" ; ;

6. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 7.72 }{ 6.55 } = 1.18 ; ;

7. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin( alpha ) } = fraction{ 3.8 }{ 2 * sin 46° 23'29" } = 2.62 ; ;
