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 = 5+11+13 = 29 ; ;

2. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 29 }{ 2 } = 14.5 ; ;

3. The triangle area using Heron's formula

T = sqrt{ s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 14.5 * (14.5-5)(14.5-11)(14.5-13) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 723.19 } = 26.89 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 26.89 }{ 5 } = 10.76 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 26.89 }{ 11 } = 4.89 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 26.89 }{ 13 } = 4.14 ; ;

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{ 11**2+13**2-5**2 }{ 2 * 11 * 13 } ) = 22° 5'35" ; ; b**2 = a**2+c**2 - 2ac cos beta ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ a**2+c**2-b**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 5**2+13**2-11**2 }{ 2 * 5 * 13 } ) = 55° 50'16" ; ; gamma = 180° - alpha - beta = 180° - 22° 5'35" - 55° 50'16" = 102° 4'9" ; ;

6. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 26.89 }{ 14.5 } = 1.85 ; ;

7. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin alpha } = fraction{ 5 }{ 2 * sin 22° 5'35" } = 6.65 ; ;

8. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 11**2+2 * 13**2 - 5**2 } }{ 2 } = 11.779 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 13**2+2 * 5**2 - 11**2 } }{ 2 } = 8.17 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 11**2+2 * 5**2 - 13**2 } }{ 2 } = 5.545 ; ;
