Calculate another triangle




How did we calculate this triangle?

a = 15 ; ; b = 15 ; ; c = 29 ; ;

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

p = a+b+c = 15+15+29 = 59 ; ;

2. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 59 }{ 2 } = 29.5 ; ;

3. The triangle area using Heron's formula

T = sqrt{ s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 29.5 * (29.5-15)(29.5-15)(29.5-29) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 3101.19 } = 55.69 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 55.69 }{ 15 } = 7.43 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 55.69 }{ 15 } = 7.43 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 55.69 }{ 29 } = 3.84 ; ;

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{ 15**2+29**2-15**2 }{ 2 * 15 * 29 } ) = 14° 50'6" ; ; b**2 = a**2+c**2 - 2ac cos beta ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ a**2+c**2-b**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 15**2+29**2-15**2 }{ 2 * 15 * 29 } ) = 14° 50'6" ; ; gamma = 180° - alpha - beta = 180° - 14° 50'6" - 14° 50'6" = 150° 19'47" ; ;

6. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 55.69 }{ 29.5 } = 1.89 ; ;

7. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin alpha } = fraction{ 15 }{ 2 * sin 14° 50'6" } = 29.29 ; ;

8. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 15**2+2 * 29**2 - 15**2 } }{ 2 } = 21.835 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 29**2+2 * 15**2 - 15**2 } }{ 2 } = 21.835 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 15**2+2 * 15**2 - 29**2 } }{ 2 } = 3.841 ; ;
