Calculate another triangle




How did we calculate this triangle?

a = 16 ; ; b = 17 ; ; c = 25 ; ;

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

p = a+b+c = 16+17+25 = 58 ; ;

2. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 58 }{ 2 } = 29 ; ;

3. The triangle area using Heron's formula

T = sqrt{ s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 29 * (29-16)(29-17)(29-25) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 18096 } = 134.52 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 134.52 }{ 16 } = 16.82 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 134.52 }{ 17 } = 15.83 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 134.52 }{ 25 } = 10.76 ; ;

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{ 17**2+25**2-16**2 }{ 2 * 17 * 25 } ) = 39° 16'30" ; ; b**2 = a**2+c**2 - 2ac cos beta ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ a**2+c**2-b**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 16**2+25**2-17**2 }{ 2 * 16 * 25 } ) = 42° 16'7" ; ; gamma = 180° - alpha - beta = 180° - 39° 16'30" - 42° 16'7" = 98° 27'23" ; ;

6. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 134.52 }{ 29 } = 4.64 ; ;

7. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin alpha } = fraction{ 16 }{ 2 * sin 39° 16'30" } = 12.64 ; ;

8. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 17**2+2 * 25**2 - 16**2 } }{ 2 } = 19.824 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 25**2+2 * 16**2 - 17**2 } }{ 2 } = 19.19 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 17**2+2 * 16**2 - 25**2 } }{ 2 } = 10.782 ; ;
