Calculate another triangle




How did we calculate this triangle?

a = 15 ; ; b = 26 ; ; c = 28 ; ;

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

p = a+b+c = 15+26+28 = 69 ; ;

2. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 69 }{ 2 } = 34.5 ; ;

3. The triangle area using Heron's formula

T = sqrt{ s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 34.5 * (34.5-15)(34.5-26)(34.5-28) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 37169.44 } = 192.79 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 192.79 }{ 15 } = 25.71 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 192.79 }{ 26 } = 14.83 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 192.79 }{ 28 } = 13.77 ; ;

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{ 26**2+28**2-15**2 }{ 2 * 26 * 28 } ) = 31° 58'55" ; ; b**2 = a**2+c**2 - 2ac cos beta ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ a**2+c**2-b**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 15**2+28**2-26**2 }{ 2 * 15 * 28 } ) = 66° 38'42" ; ; gamma = 180° - alpha - beta = 180° - 31° 58'55" - 66° 38'42" = 81° 22'23" ; ;

6. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 192.79 }{ 34.5 } = 5.59 ; ;

7. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin alpha } = fraction{ 15 }{ 2 * sin 31° 58'55" } = 14.16 ; ;

8. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 26**2+2 * 28**2 - 15**2 } }{ 2 } = 25.957 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 28**2+2 * 15**2 - 26**2 } }{ 2 } = 18.317 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 26**2+2 * 15**2 - 28**2 } }{ 2 } = 15.953 ; ;
