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 = 13+15+21 = 49 ; ;

2. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 49 }{ 2 } = 24.5 ; ;

3. The triangle area using Heron's formula

T = sqrt{ s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 24.5 * (24.5-13)(24.5-15)(24.5-21) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 9368.19 } = 96.79 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 96.79 }{ 13 } = 14.89 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 96.79 }{ 15 } = 12.91 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 96.79 }{ 21 } = 9.22 ; ;

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{ 15**2+21**2-13**2 }{ 2 * 15 * 21 } ) = 37° 55'6" ; ; b**2 = a**2+c**2 - 2ac cos beta ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ a**2+c**2-b**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 13**2+21**2-15**2 }{ 2 * 13 * 21 } ) = 45° 9'36" ; ; gamma = 180° - alpha - beta = 180° - 37° 55'6" - 45° 9'36" = 96° 55'18" ; ;

6. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 96.79 }{ 24.5 } = 3.95 ; ;

7. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin alpha } = fraction{ 13 }{ 2 * sin 37° 55'6" } = 10.58 ; ;

8. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 15**2+2 * 21**2 - 13**2 } }{ 2 } = 17.051 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 21**2+2 * 13**2 - 15**2 } }{ 2 } = 15.772 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 15**2+2 * 13**2 - 21**2 } }{ 2 } = 9.314 ; ;
