Calculate another triangle




How did we calculate this triangle?

a = 2 ; ; b = 4 ; ; c = 5 ; ;

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

p = a+b+c = 2+4+5 = 11 ; ;

2. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 11 }{ 2 } = 5.5 ; ;

3. The triangle area using Heron's formula

T = sqrt{ s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 5.5 * (5.5-2)(5.5-4)(5.5-5) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 14.44 } = 3.8 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 3.8 }{ 2 } = 3.8 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 3.8 }{ 4 } = 1.9 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 3.8 }{ 5 } = 1.52 ; ;

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{ 2**2-4**2-5**2 }{ 2 * 4 * 5 } ) = 22° 19'54" ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ b**2-a**2-c**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 4**2-2**2-5**2 }{ 2 * 2 * 5 } ) = 49° 27'30" ; ; gamma = arccos( fraction{ c**2-a**2-b**2 }{ 2ba } ) = arccos( fraction{ 5**2-2**2-4**2 }{ 2 * 4 * 2 } ) = 108° 12'36" ; ;

6. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 3.8 }{ 5.5 } = 0.69 ; ;

7. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin( alpha ) } = fraction{ 2 }{ 2 * sin 22° 19'54" } = 2.63 ; ;
