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+21+28 = 61 ; ;

2. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 61 }{ 2 } = 30.5 ; ;

3. The triangle area using Heron's formula

T = sqrt{ s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 30.5 * (30.5-12)(30.5-21)(30.5-28) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 13400.94 } = 115.76 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 115.76 }{ 12 } = 19.29 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 115.76 }{ 21 } = 11.02 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 115.76 }{ 28 } = 8.27 ; ;

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{ 21**2+28**2-12**2 }{ 2 * 21 * 28 } ) = 23° 11'17" ; ; b**2 = a**2+c**2 - 2ac cos beta ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ a**2+c**2-b**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 12**2+28**2-21**2 }{ 2 * 12 * 28 } ) = 43° 33'21" ; ; gamma = 180° - alpha - beta = 180° - 23° 11'17" - 43° 33'21" = 113° 15'22" ; ;

6. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 115.76 }{ 30.5 } = 3.8 ; ;

7. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin alpha } = fraction{ 12 }{ 2 * sin 23° 11'17" } = 15.24 ; ;

8. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 21**2+2 * 28**2 - 12**2 } }{ 2 } = 24.01 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 28**2+2 * 12**2 - 21**2 } }{ 2 } = 18.808 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 21**2+2 * 12**2 - 28**2 } }{ 2 } = 9.823 ; ;
