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 = 2+15+15 = 32 ; ;

2. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 32 }{ 2 } = 16 ; ;

3. The triangle area using Heron's formula

T = sqrt{ s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 16 * (16-2)(16-15)(16-15) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 224 } = 14.97 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 14.97 }{ 2 } = 14.97 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 14.97 }{ 15 } = 2 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 14.97 }{ 15 } = 2 ; ;

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{ 15**2+15**2-2**2 }{ 2 * 15 * 15 } ) = 7° 38'42" ; ; b**2 = a**2+c**2 - 2ac cos beta ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ a**2+c**2-b**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 2**2+15**2-15**2 }{ 2 * 2 * 15 } ) = 86° 10'39" ; ; gamma = 180° - alpha - beta = 180° - 7° 38'42" - 86° 10'39" = 86° 10'39" ; ;

6. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 14.97 }{ 16 } = 0.94 ; ;

7. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin alpha } = fraction{ 2 }{ 2 * sin 7° 38'42" } = 7.52 ; ;

8. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 15**2+2 * 15**2 - 2**2 } }{ 2 } = 14.967 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 15**2+2 * 2**2 - 15**2 } }{ 2 } = 7.632 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 15**2+2 * 2**2 - 15**2 } }{ 2 } = 7.632 ; ;
