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 = 14+17+20 = 51 ; ;

2. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 51 }{ 2 } = 25.5 ; ;

3. The triangle area using Heron's formula

T = sqrt{ s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 25.5 * (25.5-14)(25.5-17)(25.5-20) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 13709.44 } = 117.09 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 117.09 }{ 14 } = 16.73 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 117.09 }{ 17 } = 13.77 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 117.09 }{ 20 } = 11.71 ; ;

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+20**2-14**2 }{ 2 * 17 * 20 } ) = 43° 31'52" ; ; b**2 = a**2+c**2 - 2ac cos beta ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ a**2+c**2-b**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 14**2+20**2-17**2 }{ 2 * 14 * 20 } ) = 56° 45'19" ; ; gamma = 180° - alpha - beta = 180° - 43° 31'52" - 56° 45'19" = 79° 42'48" ; ;

6. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 117.09 }{ 25.5 } = 4.59 ; ;

7. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin alpha } = fraction{ 14 }{ 2 * sin 43° 31'52" } = 10.16 ; ;

8. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 17**2+2 * 20**2 - 14**2 } }{ 2 } = 17.19 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 20**2+2 * 14**2 - 17**2 } }{ 2 } = 15.025 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 17**2+2 * 14**2 - 20**2 } }{ 2 } = 11.937 ; ;
