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+20+21 = 55 ; ;

2. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 55 }{ 2 } = 27.5 ; ;

3. The triangle area using Heron's formula

T = sqrt{ s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 27.5 * (27.5-14)(27.5-20)(27.5-21) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 18098.44 } = 134.53 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 134.53 }{ 14 } = 19.22 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 134.53 }{ 20 } = 13.45 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 134.53 }{ 21 } = 12.81 ; ;

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+21**2-14**2 }{ 2 * 20 * 21 } ) = 39° 50'17" ; ; b**2 = a**2+c**2 - 2ac cos beta ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ a**2+c**2-b**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 14**2+21**2-20**2 }{ 2 * 14 * 21 } ) = 66° 13'49" ; ; gamma = 180° - alpha - beta = 180° - 39° 50'17" - 66° 13'49" = 73° 55'54" ; ;

6. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 134.53 }{ 27.5 } = 4.89 ; ;

7. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin alpha } = fraction{ 14 }{ 2 * sin 39° 50'17" } = 10.93 ; ;

8. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 20**2+2 * 21**2 - 14**2 } }{ 2 } = 19.274 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 21**2+2 * 14**2 - 20**2 } }{ 2 } = 14.782 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 20**2+2 * 14**2 - 21**2 } }{ 2 } = 13.702 ; ;
