Calculate another triangle




How did we calculate this triangle?

a = 15 ; ; b = 24 ; ; c = 28 ; ;

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

p = a+b+c = 15+24+28 = 67 ; ;

2. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 67 }{ 2 } = 33.5 ; ;

3. The triangle area using Heron's formula

T = sqrt{ s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 33.5 * (33.5-15)(33.5-24)(33.5-28) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 32381.94 } = 179.95 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 179.95 }{ 15 } = 23.99 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 179.95 }{ 24 } = 15 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 179.95 }{ 28 } = 12.85 ; ;

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{ 24**2+28**2-15**2 }{ 2 * 24 * 28 } ) = 32° 22'56" ; ; b**2 = a**2+c**2 - 2ac cos beta ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ a**2+c**2-b**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 15**2+28**2-24**2 }{ 2 * 15 * 28 } ) = 58° 58'15" ; ; gamma = 180° - alpha - beta = 180° - 32° 22'56" - 58° 58'15" = 88° 38'49" ; ;

6. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 179.95 }{ 33.5 } = 5.37 ; ;

7. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin alpha } = fraction{ 15 }{ 2 * sin 32° 22'56" } = 14 ; ;

8. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 24**2+2 * 28**2 - 15**2 } }{ 2 } = 24.975 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 28**2+2 * 15**2 - 24**2 } }{ 2 } = 18.987 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 24**2+2 * 15**2 - 28**2 } }{ 2 } = 14.3 ; ;
