Calculate another triangle




How did we calculate this triangle?

a = 17 ; ; b = 21 ; ; c = 29 ; ;

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

p = a+b+c = 17+21+29 = 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 * (33.5-17)(33.5-21)(33.5-29) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 31092.19 } = 176.33 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 176.33 }{ 17 } = 20.74 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 176.33 }{ 21 } = 16.79 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 176.33 }{ 29 } = 12.16 ; ;

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**2-21**2-29**2 }{ 2 * 21 * 29 } ) = 35° 23'9" ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ b**2-a**2-c**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 21**2-17**2-29**2 }{ 2 * 17 * 29 } ) = 45° 40'14" ; ; gamma = arccos( fraction{ c**2-a**2-b**2 }{ 2ba } ) = arccos( fraction{ 29**2-17**2-21**2 }{ 2 * 21 * 17 } ) = 98° 56'37" ; ;

6. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 176.33 }{ 33.5 } = 5.26 ; ;

7. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin( alpha ) } = fraction{ 17 }{ 2 * sin 35° 23'9" } = 14.68 ; ;
