Calculate another triangle




How did we calculate this triangle?

a = 21 ; ; b = 23 ; ; c = 30 ; ;

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

p = a+b+c = 21+23+30 = 74 ; ;

2. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 74 }{ 2 } = 37 ; ;

3. The triangle area using Heron's formula

T = sqrt{ s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 37 * (37-21)(37-23)(37-30) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 58016 } = 240.87 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 240.87 }{ 21 } = 22.94 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 240.87 }{ 23 } = 20.94 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 240.87 }{ 30 } = 16.06 ; ;

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+30**2-21**2 }{ 2 * 23 * 30 } ) = 44° 16'46" ; ; b**2 = a**2+c**2 - 2ac cos beta ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ a**2+c**2-b**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 21**2+30**2-23**2 }{ 2 * 21 * 30 } ) = 49° 52'33" ; ; gamma = 180° - alpha - beta = 180° - 44° 16'46" - 49° 52'33" = 85° 50'40" ; ;

6. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 240.87 }{ 37 } = 6.51 ; ;

7. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin alpha } = fraction{ 21 }{ 2 * sin 44° 16'46" } = 15.04 ; ;

8. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 23**2+2 * 30**2 - 21**2 } }{ 2 } = 24.581 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 30**2+2 * 21**2 - 23**2 } }{ 2 } = 23.2 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 23**2+2 * 21**2 - 30**2 } }{ 2 } = 16.125 ; ;
