Calculate another triangle




How did we calculate this triangle?

a = 10 ; ; b = 20 ; ; c = 20 ; ;

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

p = a+b+c = 10+20+20 = 50 ; ;

2. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 50 }{ 2 } = 25 ; ;

3. The triangle area using Heron's formula

T = sqrt{ s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 25 * (25-10)(25-20)(25-20) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 9375 } = 96.82 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 96.82 }{ 10 } = 19.36 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 96.82 }{ 20 } = 9.68 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 96.82 }{ 20 } = 9.68 ; ;

5. 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{ 20**2+20**2-10**2 }{ 2 * 20 * 20 } ) = 28° 57'18" ; ; b**2 = a**2+c**2 - 2ac cos beta ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ a**2+c**2-b**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 10**2+20**2-20**2 }{ 2 * 10 * 20 } ) = 75° 31'21" ; ; gamma = 180° - alpha - beta = 180° - 28° 57'18" - 75° 31'21" = 75° 31'21" ; ;

6. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 96.82 }{ 25 } = 3.87 ; ;

7. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin alpha } = fraction{ 10 }{ 2 * sin 28° 57'18" } = 10.33 ; ;

8. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 20**2+2 * 20**2 - 10**2 } }{ 2 } = 19.365 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 20**2+2 * 10**2 - 20**2 } }{ 2 } = 12.247 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 20**2+2 * 10**2 - 20**2 } }{ 2 } = 12.247 ; ;
