Calculate another triangle




How did we calculate this triangle?

a = 11 ; ; b = 12 ; ; c = 15 ; ;

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

p = a+b+c = 11+12+15 = 38 ; ;

2. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 38 }{ 2 } = 19 ; ;

3. The triangle area using Heron's formula

T = sqrt{ s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 19 * (19-11)(19-12)(19-15) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 4256 } = 65.24 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 65.24 }{ 11 } = 11.86 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 65.24 }{ 12 } = 10.87 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 65.24 }{ 15 } = 8.7 ; ;

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{ 12**2+15**2-11**2 }{ 2 * 12 * 15 } ) = 46° 27'28" ; ; b**2 = a**2+c**2 - 2ac cos beta ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ a**2+c**2-b**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 11**2+15**2-12**2 }{ 2 * 11 * 15 } ) = 52° 15'25" ; ; gamma = 180° - alpha - beta = 180° - 46° 27'28" - 52° 15'25" = 81° 17'7" ; ;

6. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 65.24 }{ 19 } = 3.43 ; ;

7. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin alpha } = fraction{ 11 }{ 2 * sin 46° 27'28" } = 7.59 ; ;

8. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 12**2+2 * 15**2 - 11**2 } }{ 2 } = 12.42 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 15**2+2 * 11**2 - 12**2 } }{ 2 } = 11.705 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 12**2+2 * 11**2 - 15**2 } }{ 2 } = 8.732 ; ;
