Calculate another triangle




How did we calculate this triangle?

a = 38 ; ; b = 45.5 ; ; c = 55 ; ;

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

p = a+b+c = 38+45.5+55 = 138.5 ; ;

2. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 138.5 }{ 2 } = 69.25 ; ;

3. The triangle area using Heron's formula

T = sqrt{ s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 69.25 * (69.25-38)(69.25-45.5)(69.25-55) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 732399.9 } = 855.8 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 855.8 }{ 38 } = 45.04 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 855.8 }{ 45.5 } = 37.62 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 855.8 }{ 55 } = 31.12 ; ;

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{ 45.5**2+55**2-38**2 }{ 2 * 45.5 * 55 } ) = 43° 9'14" ; ; b**2 = a**2+c**2 - 2ac cos beta ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ a**2+c**2-b**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 38**2+55**2-45.5**2 }{ 2 * 38 * 55 } ) = 54° 58'48" ; ; gamma = 180° - alpha - beta = 180° - 43° 9'14" - 54° 58'48" = 81° 51'59" ; ;

6. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 855.8 }{ 69.25 } = 12.36 ; ;

7. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin alpha } = fraction{ 38 }{ 2 * sin 43° 9'14" } = 27.78 ; ;

8. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 45.5**2+2 * 55**2 - 38**2 } }{ 2 } = 46.761 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 55**2+2 * 38**2 - 45.5**2 } }{ 2 } = 41.436 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 45.5**2+2 * 38**2 - 55**2 } }{ 2 } = 31.637 ; ;
