Calculate another triangle




How did we calculate this triangle?

a = 3 ; ; b = 3 ; ; c = 3 ; ;

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

p = a+b+c = 3+3+3 = 9 ; ;

2. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 9 }{ 2 } = 4.5 ; ;

3. The triangle area using Heron's formula

T = sqrt{ s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 4.5 * (4.5-3)(4.5-3)(4.5-3) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 15.19 } = 3.9 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 3.9 }{ 3 } = 2.6 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 3.9 }{ 3 } = 2.6 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 3.9 }{ 3 } = 2.6 ; ;

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{ 3**2-3**2-3**2 }{ 2 * 3 * 3 } ) = 60° ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ b**2-a**2-c**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 3**2-3**2-3**2 }{ 2 * 3 * 3 } ) = 60° ; ; gamma = arccos( fraction{ c**2-a**2-b**2 }{ 2ba } ) = arccos( fraction{ 3**2-3**2-3**2 }{ 2 * 3 * 3 } ) = 60° ; ;

6. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 3.9 }{ 4.5 } = 0.87 ; ;

7. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin( alpha ) } = fraction{ 3 }{ 2 * sin 60° } = 1.73 ; ;
