Calculate another triangle




How did we calculate this triangle?

a = 4 ; ; b = 12 ; ; c = 14 ; ;

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

p = a+b+c = 4+12+14 = 30 ; ;

2. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 30 }{ 2 } = 15 ; ;

3. The triangle area using Heron's formula

T = sqrt{ s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 15 * (15-4)(15-12)(15-14) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 495 } = 22.25 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 22.25 }{ 4 } = 11.12 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 22.25 }{ 12 } = 3.71 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 22.25 }{ 14 } = 3.18 ; ;

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{ 12**2+14**2-4**2 }{ 2 * 12 * 14 } ) = 15° 21'32" ; ; b**2 = a**2+c**2 - 2ac cos beta ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ a**2+c**2-b**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 4**2+14**2-12**2 }{ 2 * 4 * 14 } ) = 52° 37' ; ; gamma = 180° - alpha - beta = 180° - 15° 21'32" - 52° 37' = 112° 1'28" ; ;

6. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 22.25 }{ 15 } = 1.48 ; ;

7. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin alpha } = fraction{ 4 }{ 2 * sin 15° 21'32" } = 7.55 ; ;

8. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 12**2+2 * 14**2 - 4**2 } }{ 2 } = 12.884 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 14**2+2 * 4**2 - 12**2 } }{ 2 } = 8.367 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 12**2+2 * 4**2 - 14**2 } }{ 2 } = 5.568 ; ;
