Calculate another triangle




How did we calculate this triangle?

a = 18 ; ; b = 26 ; ; c = 28 ; ;

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

p = a+b+c = 18+26+28 = 72 ; ;

2. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 72 }{ 2 } = 36 ; ;

3. The triangle area using Heron's formula

T = sqrt{ s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 36 * (36-18)(36-26)(36-28) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 51840 } = 227.68 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 227.68 }{ 18 } = 25.3 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 227.68 }{ 26 } = 17.51 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 227.68 }{ 28 } = 16.26 ; ;

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{ 18**2-26**2-28**2 }{ 2 * 26 * 28 } ) = 38° 43'9" ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ b**2-a**2-c**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 26**2-18**2-28**2 }{ 2 * 18 * 28 } ) = 64° 37'23" ; ; gamma = arccos( fraction{ c**2-a**2-b**2 }{ 2ba } ) = arccos( fraction{ 28**2-18**2-26**2 }{ 2 * 26 * 18 } ) = 76° 39'28" ; ;

6. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 227.68 }{ 36 } = 6.32 ; ;

7. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin( alpha ) } = fraction{ 18 }{ 2 * sin 38° 43'9" } = 14.39 ; ;
