Calculate another triangle




How did we calculate this triangle?

a = 4 ; ; b = 18 ; ; c = 18 ; ;

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

p = a+b+c = 4+18+18 = 40 ; ;

2. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 40 }{ 2 } = 20 ; ;

3. The triangle area using Heron's formula

T = sqrt{ s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 20 * (20-4)(20-18)(20-18) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 1280 } = 35.78 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 35.78 }{ 4 } = 17.89 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 35.78 }{ 18 } = 3.98 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 35.78 }{ 18 } = 3.98 ; ;

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{ b**2+c**2-a**2 }{ 2bc } ) = arccos( fraction{ 18**2+18**2-4**2 }{ 2 * 18 * 18 } ) = 12° 45'31" ; ; b**2 = a**2+c**2 - 2ac cos beta ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ a**2+c**2-b**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 4**2+18**2-18**2 }{ 2 * 4 * 18 } ) = 83° 37'14" ; ; gamma = 180° - alpha - beta = 180° - 12° 45'31" - 83° 37'14" = 83° 37'14" ; ;

6. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 35.78 }{ 20 } = 1.79 ; ;

7. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin alpha } = fraction{ 4 }{ 2 * sin 12° 45'31" } = 9.06 ; ;

8. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 18**2+2 * 18**2 - 4**2 } }{ 2 } = 17.889 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 18**2+2 * 4**2 - 18**2 } }{ 2 } = 9.434 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 18**2+2 * 4**2 - 18**2 } }{ 2 } = 9.434 ; ;
