Calculate another triangle




How did we calculate this triangle?

a = 13 ; ; b = 16 ; ; c = 20 ; ;

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

p = a+b+c = 13+16+20 = 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)(24.5-16)(24.5-20) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 10776.94 } = 103.81 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 103.81 }{ 13 } = 15.97 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 103.81 }{ 16 } = 12.98 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 103.81 }{ 20 } = 10.38 ; ;

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{ 16**2+20**2-13**2 }{ 2 * 16 * 20 } ) = 40° 27'11" ; ; b**2 = a**2+c**2 - 2ac cos beta ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ a**2+c**2-b**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 13**2+20**2-16**2 }{ 2 * 13 * 20 } ) = 52° 59'32" ; ; gamma = 180° - alpha - beta = 180° - 40° 27'11" - 52° 59'32" = 86° 33'17" ; ;

6. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 103.81 }{ 24.5 } = 4.24 ; ;

7. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin alpha } = fraction{ 13 }{ 2 * sin 40° 27'11" } = 10.02 ; ;

8. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 16**2+2 * 20**2 - 13**2 } }{ 2 } = 16.904 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 20**2+2 * 13**2 - 16**2 } }{ 2 } = 14.849 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 16**2+2 * 13**2 - 20**2 } }{ 2 } = 10.607 ; ;
