Calculate another triangle


How did we calculate this triangle?

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

p = a+b+c = 11+20+28 = 59 ; ;

2. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 59 }{ 2 } = 29.5 ; ;

3. The triangle area using Heron's formula

T = sqrt{ s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 29.5 * (29.5-11)(29.5-20)(29.5-28) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 7776.94 } = 88.19 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 88.19 }{ 11 } = 16.03 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 88.19 }{ 20 } = 8.82 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 88.19 }{ 28 } = 6.3 ; ;

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+28**2-11**2 }{ 2 * 20 * 28 } ) = 18° 21'29" ; ; b**2 = a**2+c**2 - 2ac cos beta ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ a**2+c**2-b**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 11**2+28**2-20**2 }{ 2 * 11 * 28 } ) = 34° 56'5" ; ; gamma = 180° - alpha - beta = 180° - 18° 21'29" - 34° 56'5" = 126° 42'26" ; ;

6. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 88.19 }{ 29.5 } = 2.99 ; ;

7. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin alpha } = fraction{ 11 }{ 2 * sin 18° 21'29" } = 17.46 ; ;

8. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 20**2+2 * 28**2 - 11**2 } }{ 2 } = 23.701 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 28**2+2 * 11**2 - 20**2 } }{ 2 } = 18.775 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 20**2+2 * 11**2 - 28**2 } }{ 2 } = 8.031 ; ;
