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 = 12+19+27 = 58 ; ;

2. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 58 }{ 2 } = 29 ; ;

3. The triangle area using Heron's formula

T = sqrt{ s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 29 * (29-12)(29-19)(29-27) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 9860 } = 99.3 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 99.3 }{ 12 } = 16.55 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 99.3 }{ 19 } = 10.45 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 99.3 }{ 27 } = 7.36 ; ;

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{ 19**2+27**2-12**2 }{ 2 * 19 * 27 } ) = 22° 46'33" ; ; b**2 = a**2+c**2 - 2ac cos beta ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ a**2+c**2-b**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 12**2+27**2-19**2 }{ 2 * 12 * 27 } ) = 37° 48'11" ; ; gamma = 180° - alpha - beta = 180° - 22° 46'33" - 37° 48'11" = 119° 25'17" ; ;

6. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 99.3 }{ 29 } = 3.42 ; ;

7. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin alpha } = fraction{ 12 }{ 2 * sin 22° 46'33" } = 15.5 ; ;

8. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 19**2+2 * 27**2 - 12**2 } }{ 2 } = 22.561 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 27**2+2 * 12**2 - 19**2 } }{ 2 } = 18.608 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 19**2+2 * 12**2 - 27**2 } }{ 2 } = 8.382 ; ;
