Calculate another triangle




How did we calculate this triangle?

1. Input data entered: cathetus a and cathetus b

a = 299 ; ; b = 180 ; ;

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{ 299**2 + 180**2 } = 349 ; ;
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 = 299 ; ; b = 180 ; ; c = 349 ; ;

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

p = a+b+c = 299+180+349 = 828 ; ;

4. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 828 }{ 2 } = 414 ; ;

5. The triangle area - from two legs

T = fraction{ ab }{ 2 } = fraction{ 299 * 180 }{ 2 } = 26910 ; ;

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

h _a = b = 180 ; ; h _b = a = 299 ; ; T = fraction{ c h _c }{ 2 } ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 26910 }{ 349 } = 154.21 ; ;

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{ 299 }{ 349 } ) = 58° 57'6" ; ; sin beta = fraction{ b }{ c } ; ; beta = arcsin( fraction{ b }{ c } ) = arcsin( fraction{ 180 }{ 349 } ) = 31° 2'54" ; ; gamma = 90° ; ;

8. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 26910 }{ 414 } = 65 ; ;

9. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin alpha } = fraction{ 299 }{ 2 * sin 58° 57'6" } = 174.5 ; ;

10. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 180**2+2 * 349**2 - 299**2 } }{ 2 } = 233.988 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 349**2+2 * 299**2 - 180**2 } }{ 2 } = 312.252 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 180**2+2 * 299**2 - 349**2 } }{ 2 } = 174.5 ; ;
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.
