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+7+7 = 16 ; ;

2. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 16 }{ 2 } = 8 ; ;

3. The triangle area using Heron's formula

T = sqrt{ s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 8 * (8-2)(8-7)(8-7) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 48 } = 6.93 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 6.93 }{ 2 } = 6.93 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 6.93 }{ 7 } = 1.98 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 6.93 }{ 7 } = 1.98 ; ;

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{ 7**2+7**2-2**2 }{ 2 * 7 * 7 } ) = 16° 25'35" ; ; b**2 = a**2+c**2 - 2ac cos beta ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ a**2+c**2-b**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 2**2+7**2-7**2 }{ 2 * 2 * 7 } ) = 81° 47'12" ; ; gamma = 180° - alpha - beta = 180° - 16° 25'35" - 81° 47'12" = 81° 47'12" ; ;

6. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 6.93 }{ 8 } = 0.87 ; ;

7. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin alpha } = fraction{ 2 }{ 2 * sin 16° 25'35" } = 3.54 ; ;

8. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 7**2+2 * 7**2 - 2**2 } }{ 2 } = 6.928 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 7**2+2 * 2**2 - 7**2 } }{ 2 } = 3.775 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 7**2+2 * 2**2 - 7**2 } }{ 2 } = 3.775 ; ;
