Calculate another triangle




How did we calculate this triangle?

1. Input data entered: cathetus a hypotenuse c

a = 60 ; ; c = 75 ; ;

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{ 75**2 - 60**2 } = 45 ; ;


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 = 60 ; ; b = 45 ; ; c = 75 ; ;

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

p = a+b+c = 60+45+75 = 180 ; ;

4. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 180 }{ 2 } = 90 ; ;

5. The triangle area using Heron's formula

T = sqrt{ s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 90 * (90-60)(90-45)(90-75) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 1822500 } = 1350 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 1350 }{ 60 } = 45 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 1350 }{ 45 } = 60 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 1350 }{ 75 } = 36 ; ;

7. Calculation of the inner angles of the triangle using a Law of Cosines

a**2 = b**2+c**2 - 2bc cos( alpha ) ; ; alpha = arccos( fraction{ a**2-b**2-c**2 }{ 2bc } ) = arccos( fraction{ 60**2-45**2-75**2 }{ 2 * 45 * 75 } ) = 53° 7'48" ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ b**2-a**2-c**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 45**2-60**2-75**2 }{ 2 * 60 * 75 } ) = 36° 52'12" ; ; gamma = arccos( fraction{ c**2-a**2-b**2 }{ 2ba } ) = arccos( fraction{ 75**2-60**2-45**2 }{ 2 * 45 * 60 } ) = 90° ; ;

8. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 1350 }{ 90 } = 15 ; ;

9. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin( alpha ) } = fraction{ 60 }{ 2 * sin 53° 7'48" } = 37.5 ; ;
