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+25+28 = 57 ; ;

2. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 57 }{ 2 } = 28.5 ; ;

3. The triangle area using Heron's formula

T = sqrt{ s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 28.5 * (28.5-4)(28.5-25)(28.5-28) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 1221.94 } = 34.96 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 34.96 }{ 4 } = 17.48 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 34.96 }{ 25 } = 2.8 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 34.96 }{ 28 } = 2.5 ; ;

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{ 25**2+28**2-4**2 }{ 2 * 25 * 28 } ) = 5° 43'55" ; ; b**2 = a**2+c**2 - 2ac cos beta ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ a**2+c**2-b**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 4**2+28**2-25**2 }{ 2 * 4 * 28 } ) = 38° 37'29" ; ;
 gamma = 180° - alpha - beta = 180° - 5° 43'55" - 38° 37'29" = 135° 38'36" ; ;

6. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 34.96 }{ 28.5 } = 1.23 ; ;

7. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin alpha } = fraction{ 4 }{ 2 * sin 5° 43'55" } = 20.03 ; ;

8. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 25**2+2 * 28**2 - 4**2 } }{ 2 } = 26.467 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 28**2+2 * 4**2 - 25**2 } }{ 2 } = 15.612 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 25**2+2 * 4**2 - 28**2 } }{ 2 } = 11.158 ; ;
