Calculate another triangle




How did we calculate this triangle?

1. Input data entered: cathetus a and cathetus b

a = 175 ; ; b = 288 ; ;

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{ 175**2 + 288**2 } = 337 ; ;


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 = 175 ; ; b = 288 ; ; c = 337 ; ;

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

p = a+b+c = 175+288+337 = 800 ; ;

4. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 800 }{ 2 } = 400 ; ;

5. The triangle area - from two legs

T = fraction{ ab }{ 2 } = fraction{ 175 * 288 }{ 2 } = 25200 ; ;

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

h _a = b = 288 ; ; h _b = a = 175 ; ; T = fraction{ c h _c }{ 2 } ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 25200 }{ 337 } = 149.55 ; ;

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{ 175 }{ 337 } ) = 31° 17'4" ; ; sin beta = fraction{ b }{ c } ; ; beta = arcsin( fraction{ b }{ c } ) = arcsin( fraction{ 288 }{ 337 } ) = 58° 42'56" ; ; gamma = 90° ; ;

8. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 25200 }{ 400 } = 63 ; ;

9. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin alpha } = fraction{ 175 }{ 2 * sin 31° 17'4" } = 168.5 ; ;

10. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 288**2+2 * 337**2 - 175**2 } }{ 2 } = 300.999 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 337**2+2 * 175**2 - 288**2 } }{ 2 } = 226.63 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 288**2+2 * 175**2 - 337**2 } }{ 2 } = 168.5 ; ;
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.
