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 = 4+20+21 = 45 ; ;

2. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 45 }{ 2 } = 22.5 ; ;

3. The triangle area using Heron's formula

T = sqrt{ s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 22.5 * (22.5-4)(22.5-20)(22.5-21) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 1560.94 } = 39.51 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 39.51 }{ 4 } = 19.75 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 39.51 }{ 20 } = 3.95 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 39.51 }{ 21 } = 3.76 ; ;

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{ 20**2+21**2-4**2 }{ 2 * 20 * 21 } ) = 10° 50'39" ; ; b**2 = a**2+c**2 - 2ac cos beta ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ a**2+c**2-b**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 4**2+21**2-20**2 }{ 2 * 4 * 21 } ) = 70° 10' ; ; gamma = 180° - alpha - beta = 180° - 10° 50'39" - 70° 10' = 98° 59'21" ; ;

6. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 39.51 }{ 22.5 } = 1.76 ; ;

7. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin alpha } = fraction{ 4 }{ 2 * sin 10° 50'39" } = 10.63 ; ;

8. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 20**2+2 * 21**2 - 4**2 } }{ 2 } = 20.408 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 21**2+2 * 4**2 - 20**2 } }{ 2 } = 11.336 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 20**2+2 * 4**2 - 21**2 } }{ 2 } = 9.887 ; ;
