Calculate another triangle




How did we calculate this triangle?

a = 4 ; ; b = 26 ; ; c = 28 ; ;

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

p = a+b+c = 4+26+28 = 58 ; ;

2. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 58 }{ 2 } = 29 ; ;

3. The triangle area using Heron's formula

T = sqrt{ s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 29 * (29-4)(29-26)(29-28) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 2175 } = 46.64 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 46.64 }{ 4 } = 23.32 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 46.64 }{ 26 } = 3.59 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 46.64 }{ 28 } = 3.33 ; ;

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{ 26**2+28**2-4**2 }{ 2 * 26 * 28 } ) = 7° 21'40" ; ; b**2 = a**2+c**2 - 2ac cos beta ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ a**2+c**2-b**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 4**2+28**2-26**2 }{ 2 * 4 * 28 } ) = 56° 23'15" ; ; gamma = 180° - alpha - beta = 180° - 7° 21'40" - 56° 23'15" = 116° 15'4" ; ;

6. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 46.64 }{ 29 } = 1.61 ; ;

7. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin alpha } = fraction{ 4 }{ 2 * sin 7° 21'40" } = 15.61 ; ;

8. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 26**2+2 * 28**2 - 4**2 } }{ 2 } = 26.944 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 28**2+2 * 4**2 - 26**2 } }{ 2 } = 15.199 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 26**2+2 * 4**2 - 28**2 } }{ 2 } = 12.247 ; ;
