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 = 16+23+27 = 66 ; ;

2. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 66 }{ 2 } = 33 ; ;

3. The triangle area using Heron's formula

T = sqrt{ s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 33 * (33-16)(33-23)(33-27) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 33660 } = 183.47 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 183.47 }{ 16 } = 22.93 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 183.47 }{ 23 } = 15.95 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 183.47 }{ 27 } = 13.59 ; ;

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{ 23**2+27**2-16**2 }{ 2 * 23 * 27 } ) = 36° 13'9" ; ; b**2 = a**2+c**2 - 2ac cos beta ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ a**2+c**2-b**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 16**2+27**2-23**2 }{ 2 * 16 * 27 } ) = 58° 8'40" ; ; gamma = 180° - alpha - beta = 180° - 36° 13'9" - 58° 8'40" = 85° 38'11" ; ;

6. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 183.47 }{ 33 } = 5.56 ; ;

7. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin alpha } = fraction{ 16 }{ 2 * sin 36° 13'9" } = 13.54 ; ;

8. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 23**2+2 * 27**2 - 16**2 } }{ 2 } = 23.77 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 27**2+2 * 16**2 - 23**2 } }{ 2 } = 18.98 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 23**2+2 * 16**2 - 27**2 } }{ 2 } = 14.5 ; ;
