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+20+29 = 64 ; ;

2. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 64 }{ 2 } = 32 ; ;

3. The triangle area using Heron's formula

T = sqrt{ s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 32 * (32-15)(32-20)(32-29) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 19584 } = 139.94 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 139.94 }{ 15 } = 18.66 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 139.94 }{ 20 } = 13.99 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 139.94 }{ 29 } = 9.65 ; ;

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+29**2-15**2 }{ 2 * 20 * 29 } ) = 28° 51'10" ; ; b**2 = a**2+c**2 - 2ac cos beta ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ a**2+c**2-b**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 15**2+29**2-20**2 }{ 2 * 15 * 29 } ) = 40° 2'49" ; ; gamma = 180° - alpha - beta = 180° - 28° 51'10" - 40° 2'49" = 111° 6'1" ; ;

6. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 139.94 }{ 32 } = 4.37 ; ;

7. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin alpha } = fraction{ 15 }{ 2 * sin 28° 51'10" } = 15.54 ; ;

8. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 20**2+2 * 29**2 - 15**2 } }{ 2 } = 23.754 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 29**2+2 * 15**2 - 20**2 } }{ 2 } = 20.809 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 20**2+2 * 15**2 - 29**2 } }{ 2 } = 10.112 ; ;
