Calculate another triangle




How did we calculate this triangle?

1. Input data entered: cathetus a and cathetus b

a = 165 ; ; b = 250 ; ;

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

c**2 = a**2+b**2 ; ; c = sqrt{ a**2+b**2 } = sqrt{ 165**2 + 250**2 } = 299.541 ; ;


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 = 165 ; ; b = 250 ; ; c = 299.54 ; ;

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

p = a+b+c = 165+250+299.54 = 714.54 ; ;

4. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 714.54 }{ 2 } = 357.27 ; ;

5. The triangle area - from two legs

T = fraction{ ab }{ 2 } = fraction{ 165 * 250 }{ 2 } = 20625 ; ;

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

h _a = b = 250 ; ; h _b = a = 165 ; ; T = fraction{ c h _c }{ 2 } ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 20625 }{ 299.54 } = 137.71 ; ;

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{ 165 }{ 299.54 } ) = 33° 25'29" ; ; sin beta = fraction{ b }{ c } ; ; beta = arcsin( fraction{ b }{ c } ) = arcsin( fraction{ 250 }{ 299.54 } ) = 56° 34'31" ; ; gamma = 90° ; ;

8. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 20625 }{ 357.27 } = 57.73 ; ;

9. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin alpha } = fraction{ 165 }{ 2 * sin 33° 25'29" } = 149.77 ; ;

10. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 250**2+2 * 299.54**2 - 165**2 } }{ 2 } = 263.261 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 299.54**2+2 * 165**2 - 250**2 } }{ 2 } = 207.002 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 250**2+2 * 165**2 - 299.54**2 } }{ 2 } = 149.771 ; ;
Calculate another triangle

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.
