Calculate another triangle




How did we calculate this triangle?

1. Input data entered: hypotenuse c and height h

c = 208 ; ; h = 96 ; ;

2. From hypotenuse c and height h we calculate a,b - Pythagorean theorem, Euclid's theorem:

c = c_1+c_2 ; ; h**2 = c_1 * c_2 ; ; ; ; h**2 = c_1 * (c-c_1) ; ; h**2 = c_1 * c-c_1 **2 ; ; ; ; c_1**2 -c_1 * c + h**2 = 0 ; ; ; ; c_1**2 -208 * c_1 + 9216 = 0 ; ; ; ; c_1 = 144 ; ; c_2 = 64 ; ; ; ; a = sqrt{ c_1**2+h**2 } = sqrt{ 144**2+96**2 } = 173.066 ; ; b = sqrt{ c_2**2+h**2 } = sqrt{ 64**2+96**2 } = 115.378 ; ;


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 = 173.07 ; ; b = 115.38 ; ; c = 208 ; ;

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

p = a+b+c = 173.07+115.38+208 = 496.44 ; ;

4. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 496.44 }{ 2 } = 248.22 ; ;

5. The triangle area - from two legs

T = fraction{ ab }{ 2 } = fraction{ 173.07 * 115.38 }{ 2 } = 9984 ; ;

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

h _a = b = 115.38 ; ; h _b = a = 173.07 ; ; T = fraction{ c h _c }{ 2 } ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 9984 }{ 208 } = 96 ; ;

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{ 173.07 }{ 208 } ) = 56° 18'36" ; ; sin beta = fraction{ b }{ c } ; ; beta = arcsin( fraction{ b }{ c } ) = arcsin( fraction{ 115.38 }{ 208 } ) = 33° 41'24" ; ; gamma = 90° ; ;

8. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 9984 }{ 248.22 } = 40.22 ; ;

9. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin( alpha ) } = fraction{ 173.07 }{ 2 * sin 56° 18'36" } = 104 ; ;

10. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 115.38**2+2 * 208**2 - 173.07**2 } }{ 2 } = 144.222 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 208**2+2 * 173.07**2 - 115.38**2 } }{ 2 } = 182.428 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 115.38**2+2 * 173.07**2 - 208**2 } }{ 2 } = 104 ; ;
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.
