Calculate another triangle




How did we calculate this triangle?

a = 40 ; ; b = 55 ; ; c = 85 ; ;

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

p = a+b+c = 40+55+85 = 180 ; ;

2. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 180 }{ 2 } = 90 ; ;

3. The triangle area using Heron's formula

T = sqrt{ s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 90 * (90-40)(90-55)(90-85) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 787500 } = 887.41 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 887.41 }{ 40 } = 44.37 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 887.41 }{ 55 } = 32.27 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 887.41 }{ 85 } = 20.88 ; ;

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{ 40**2-55**2-85**2 }{ 2 * 55 * 85 } ) = 22° 18'41" ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ b**2-a**2-c**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 55**2-40**2-85**2 }{ 2 * 40 * 85 } ) = 31° 28'1" ; ; gamma = arccos( fraction{ c**2-a**2-b**2 }{ 2ba } ) = arccos( fraction{ 85**2-40**2-55**2 }{ 2 * 55 * 40 } ) = 126° 13'18" ; ;

6. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 887.41 }{ 90 } = 9.86 ; ;

7. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin( alpha ) } = fraction{ 40 }{ 2 * sin 22° 18'41" } = 52.68 ; ;
