Calculate another triangle




How did we calculate this triangle?

a = 12 ; ; b = 24 ; ; c = 27 ; ;

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

p = a+b+c = 12+24+27 = 63 ; ;

2. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 63 }{ 2 } = 31.5 ; ;

3. The triangle area using Heron's formula

T = sqrt{ s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 31.5 * (31.5-12)(31.5-24)(31.5-27) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 20730.94 } = 143.98 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 143.98 }{ 12 } = 24 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 143.98 }{ 24 } = 12 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 143.98 }{ 27 } = 10.67 ; ;

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{ 24**2+27**2-12**2 }{ 2 * 24 * 27 } ) = 26° 23'4" ; ; b**2 = a**2+c**2 - 2ac cos beta ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ a**2+c**2-b**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 12**2+27**2-24**2 }{ 2 * 12 * 27 } ) = 62° 43'13" ; ; gamma = 180° - alpha - beta = 180° - 26° 23'4" - 62° 43'13" = 90° 53'43" ; ;

6. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 143.98 }{ 31.5 } = 4.57 ; ;

7. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin alpha } = fraction{ 12 }{ 2 * sin 26° 23'4" } = 13.5 ; ;

8. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 24**2+2 * 27**2 - 12**2 } }{ 2 } = 24.829 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 27**2+2 * 12**2 - 24**2 } }{ 2 } = 17.103 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 24**2+2 * 12**2 - 27**2 } }{ 2 } = 13.332 ; ;
