Calculate another triangle




How did we calculate this triangle?

a = 13 ; ; b = 17 ; ; c = 18 ; ;

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

p = a+b+c = 13+17+18 = 48 ; ;

2. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 48 }{ 2 } = 24 ; ;

3. The triangle area using Heron's formula

T = sqrt{ s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 24 * (24-13)(24-17)(24-18) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 11088 } = 105.3 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 105.3 }{ 13 } = 16.2 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 105.3 }{ 17 } = 12.39 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 105.3 }{ 18 } = 11.7 ; ;

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{ 17**2+18**2-13**2 }{ 2 * 17 * 18 } ) = 43° 29'25" ; ; b**2 = a**2+c**2 - 2ac cos beta ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ a**2+c**2-b**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 13**2+18**2-17**2 }{ 2 * 13 * 18 } ) = 64° 9'27" ; ; gamma = 180° - alpha - beta = 180° - 43° 29'25" - 64° 9'27" = 72° 21'7" ; ;

6. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 105.3 }{ 24 } = 4.39 ; ;

7. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin alpha } = fraction{ 13 }{ 2 * sin 43° 29'25" } = 9.44 ; ;

8. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 17**2+2 * 18**2 - 13**2 } }{ 2 } = 16.256 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 18**2+2 * 13**2 - 17**2 } }{ 2 } = 13.2 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 17**2+2 * 13**2 - 18**2 } }{ 2 } = 12.166 ; ;
