# How did we calculate this triangle?

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. ### 1. The triangle circumference is the sum of the lengths of its three sides ### 2. Semiperimeter of the triangle ### 3. The triangle area using Heron's formula ### 4. Calculate the heights of the triangle from its area. ### 5. Calculation of the inner angles of the triangle using a Law of Cosines
