Calculate another triangle




How did we calculate this triangle?

a = 2 ; ; b = 8 ; ; c = 8 ; ;

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

p = a+b+c = 2+8+8 = 18 ; ;

2. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 18 }{ 2 } = 9 ; ;

3. The triangle area using Heron's formula

T = sqrt{ s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 9 * (9-2)(9-8)(9-8) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 63 } = 7.94 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 7.94 }{ 2 } = 7.94 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 7.94 }{ 8 } = 1.98 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 7.94 }{ 8 } = 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{ a**2-b**2-c**2 }{ 2bc } ) = arccos( fraction{ 2**2-8**2-8**2 }{ 2 * 8 * 8 } ) = 14° 21'41" ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ b**2-a**2-c**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 8**2-2**2-8**2 }{ 2 * 2 * 8 } ) = 82° 49'9" ; ; gamma = arccos( fraction{ c**2-a**2-b**2 }{ 2ba } ) = arccos( fraction{ 8**2-2**2-8**2 }{ 2 * 8 * 2 } ) = 82° 49'9" ; ;

6. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 7.94 }{ 9 } = 0.88 ; ;

7. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin( alpha ) } = fraction{ 2 }{ 2 * sin 14° 21'41" } = 4.03 ; ;
