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 = 21+23+28 = 72 ; ;

2. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 72 }{ 2 } = 36 ; ;

3. The triangle area using Heron's formula

T = sqrt{ s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 36 * (36-21)(36-23)(36-28) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 56160 } = 236.98 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 236.98 }{ 21 } = 22.57 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 236.98 }{ 23 } = 20.61 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 236.98 }{ 28 } = 16.93 ; ;

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{ 23**2+28**2-21**2 }{ 2 * 23 * 28 } ) = 47° 23'20" ; ; b**2 = a**2+c**2 - 2ac cos beta ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ a**2+c**2-b**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 21**2+28**2-23**2 }{ 2 * 21 * 28 } ) = 53° 42'45" ; ;
 gamma = 180° - alpha - beta = 180° - 47° 23'20" - 53° 42'45" = 78° 53'55" ; ;

6. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 236.98 }{ 36 } = 6.58 ; ;

7. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin alpha } = fraction{ 21 }{ 2 * sin 47° 23'20" } = 14.27 ; ;

8. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 23**2+2 * 28**2 - 21**2 } }{ 2 } = 23.372 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 28**2+2 * 21**2 - 23**2 } }{ 2 } = 21.915 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 23**2+2 * 21**2 - 28**2 } }{ 2 } = 17 ; ;
