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 = 15+16+26 = 57 ; ;

2. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 57 }{ 2 } = 28.5 ; ;

3. The triangle area using Heron's formula

T = sqrt{ s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 28.5 * (28.5-15)(28.5-16)(28.5-26) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 12023.44 } = 109.65 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 109.65 }{ 15 } = 14.62 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 109.65 }{ 16 } = 13.71 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 109.65 }{ 26 } = 8.43 ; ;

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{ 16**2+26**2-15**2 }{ 2 * 16 * 26 } ) = 31° 48'52" ; ; b**2 = a**2+c**2 - 2ac cos beta ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ a**2+c**2-b**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 15**2+26**2-16**2 }{ 2 * 15 * 26 } ) = 34° 12'58" ; ; gamma = 180° - alpha - beta = 180° - 31° 48'52" - 34° 12'58" = 113° 58'10" ; ;

6. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 109.65 }{ 28.5 } = 3.85 ; ;

7. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin alpha } = fraction{ 15 }{ 2 * sin 31° 48'52" } = 14.23 ; ;

8. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 16**2+2 * 26**2 - 15**2 } }{ 2 } = 20.242 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 26**2+2 * 15**2 - 16**2 } }{ 2 } = 19.66 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 16**2+2 * 15**2 - 26**2 } }{ 2 } = 8.456 ; ;
