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+28+29 = 59 ; ;

2. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 59 }{ 2 } = 29.5 ; ;

3. The triangle area using Heron's formula

T = sqrt{ s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 29.5 * (29.5-2)(29.5-28)(29.5-29) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 608.44 } = 24.67 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 24.67 }{ 2 } = 24.67 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 24.67 }{ 28 } = 1.76 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 24.67 }{ 29 } = 1.7 ; ;

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{ 28**2+29**2-2**2 }{ 2 * 28 * 29 } ) = 3° 28'59" ; ; b**2 = a**2+c**2 - 2ac cos beta ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ a**2+c**2-b**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 2**2+29**2-28**2 }{ 2 * 2 * 29 } ) = 58° 16'25" ; ; gamma = 180° - alpha - beta = 180° - 3° 28'59" - 58° 16'25" = 118° 14'35" ; ;

6. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 24.67 }{ 29.5 } = 0.84 ; ;

7. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin alpha } = fraction{ 2 }{ 2 * sin 3° 28'59" } = 16.46 ; ;

8. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 28**2+2 * 29**2 - 2**2 } }{ 2 } = 28.487 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 29**2+2 * 2**2 - 28**2 } }{ 2 } = 15.05 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 28**2+2 * 2**2 - 29**2 } }{ 2 } = 13.555 ; ;
