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+20+23 = 56 ; ;

2. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 56 }{ 2 } = 28 ; ;

3. The triangle area using Heron's formula

T = sqrt{ s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 28 * (28-13)(28-20)(28-23) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 16800 } = 129.61 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 129.61 }{ 13 } = 19.94 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 129.61 }{ 20 } = 12.96 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 129.61 }{ 23 } = 11.27 ; ;

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{ 20**2+23**2-13**2 }{ 2 * 20 * 23 } ) = 34° 18'4" ; ; b**2 = a**2+c**2 - 2ac cos beta ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ a**2+c**2-b**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 13**2+23**2-20**2 }{ 2 * 13 * 23 } ) = 60° 6'38" ; ; gamma = 180° - alpha - beta = 180° - 34° 18'4" - 60° 6'38" = 85° 35'18" ; ;

6. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 129.61 }{ 28 } = 4.63 ; ;

7. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin alpha } = fraction{ 13 }{ 2 * sin 34° 18'4" } = 11.53 ; ;

8. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 20**2+2 * 23**2 - 13**2 } }{ 2 } = 20.549 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 23**2+2 * 13**2 - 20**2 } }{ 2 } = 15.78 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 20**2+2 * 13**2 - 23**2 } }{ 2 } = 12.339 ; ;
