Calculate another triangle




How did we calculate this triangle?

1. Input data entered: side a, b and c.

a = 51 ; ; b = 56 ; ; c = 77 ; ;

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

p = a+b+c = 51+56+77 = 184 ; ;

3. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 184 }{ 2 } = 92 ; ;

4. The triangle area using Heron's formula

T = sqrt{ s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 92 * (92-51)(92-56)(92-77) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 2036880 } = 1427.19 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 1427.19 }{ 51 } = 55.97 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 1427.19 }{ 56 } = 50.97 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 1427.19 }{ 77 } = 37.07 ; ;

6. 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{ b**2+c**2-a**2 }{ 2bc } ) = arccos( fraction{ 56**2+77**2-51**2 }{ 2 * 56 * 77 } ) = 41° 26'59" ; ; b**2 = a**2+c**2 - 2ac cos beta ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ a**2+c**2-b**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 51**2+77**2-56**2 }{ 2 * 51 * 77 } ) = 46° 37'26" ; ; gamma = 180° - alpha - beta = 180° - 41° 26'59" - 46° 37'26" = 91° 55'35" ; ;

7. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 1427.19 }{ 92 } = 15.51 ; ;

8. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin alpha } = fraction{ 51 }{ 2 * sin 41° 26'59" } = 38.52 ; ;

9. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 56**2+2 * 77**2 - 51**2 } }{ 2 } = 62.308 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 77**2+2 * 51**2 - 56**2 } }{ 2 } = 59 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 56**2+2 * 51**2 - 77**2 } }{ 2 } = 37.232 ; ;
