Calculate another triangle




How did we calculate this triangle?

a = 17 ; ; b = 17 ; ; c = 28 ; ;

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

p = a+b+c = 17+17+28 = 62 ; ;

2. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 62 }{ 2 } = 31 ; ;

3. The triangle area using Heron's formula

T = sqrt{ s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 31 * (31-17)(31-17)(31-28) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 18228 } = 135.01 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 135.01 }{ 17 } = 15.88 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 135.01 }{ 17 } = 15.88 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 135.01 }{ 28 } = 9.64 ; ;

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{ a**2-b**2-c**2 }{ 2bc } ) = arccos( fraction{ 17**2-17**2-28**2 }{ 2 * 17 * 28 } ) = 34° 33'37" ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ b**2-a**2-c**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 17**2-17**2-28**2 }{ 2 * 17 * 28 } ) = 34° 33'37" ; ; gamma = arccos( fraction{ c**2-a**2-b**2 }{ 2ba } ) = arccos( fraction{ 28**2-17**2-17**2 }{ 2 * 17 * 17 } ) = 110° 52'46" ; ;

6. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 135.01 }{ 31 } = 4.36 ; ;

7. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin( alpha ) } = fraction{ 17 }{ 2 * sin 34° 33'37" } = 14.98 ; ;
