Calculate another triangle


How did we calculate this triangle?

1. Input data entered: cathetus a and hypotenuse c

a = 37 ; ; c = 95 ; ;

2. From cathetus a and hypotenuse c we calculate cathetus b - Pythagorean theorem:

c**2 = a**2+b**2 ; ; b = sqrt{ c**2 - a**2 } = sqrt{ 95**2 - 37**2 } = 87.499 ; ;
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.

a = 37 ; ; b = 87.5 ; ; c = 95 ; ;

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

p = a+b+c = 37+87.5+95 = 219.5 ; ;

4. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 219.5 }{ 2 } = 109.75 ; ;

5. The triangle area - from two legs

T = fraction{ ab }{ 2 } = fraction{ 37 * 87.5 }{ 2 } = 1618.72 ; ;

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

h _a = b = 87.5 ; ; h _b = a = 37 ; ; T = fraction{ c h _c }{ 2 } ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 1618.72 }{ 95 } = 34.08 ; ;

7. Calculation of the inner angles of the triangle - basic use of sine function

 sin alpha = fraction{ a }{ c } ; ; alpha = arcsin( fraction{ a }{ c } ) = arcsin( fraction{ 37 }{ 95 } ) = 22° 55'18" ; ; sin beta = fraction{ b }{ c } ; ; beta = arcsin( fraction{ b }{ c } ) = arcsin( fraction{ 87.5 }{ 95 } ) = 67° 4'42" ; ; gamma = 90° ; ;

8. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 1618.72 }{ 109.75 } = 14.75 ; ;

9. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin alpha } = fraction{ 37 }{ 2 * sin 22° 55'18" } = 47.5 ; ;

10. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 87.5**2+2 * 95**2 - 37**2 } }{ 2 } = 89.433 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 95**2+2 * 37**2 - 87.5**2 } }{ 2 } = 57.297 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 87.5**2+2 * 37**2 - 95**2 } }{ 2 } = 47.5 ; ;

Trigonometry right triangle solver. You can calculate angles, sides (adjacent, opposite, hypotenuse) and area of any right-angled triangle and use it in real world to find height. A right-angled triangle is entirely determined by two independent properties. Step-by-step explanations are provided for each calculation.
