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+14+15 = 34 ; ;

2. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 34 }{ 2 } = 17 ; ;

3. The triangle area using Heron's formula

T = sqrt{ s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 17 * (17-5)(17-14)(17-15) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 1224 } = 34.99 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 34.99 }{ 5 } = 13.99 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 34.99 }{ 14 } = 5 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 34.99 }{ 15 } = 4.66 ; ;

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{ 14**2+15**2-5**2 }{ 2 * 14 * 15 } ) = 19° 27'47" ; ; b**2 = a**2+c**2 - 2ac cos beta ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ a**2+c**2-b**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 5**2+15**2-14**2 }{ 2 * 5 * 15 } ) = 68° 53'59" ; ; gamma = 180° - alpha - beta = 180° - 19° 27'47" - 68° 53'59" = 91° 38'14" ; ;

6. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 34.99 }{ 17 } = 2.06 ; ;

7. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin alpha } = fraction{ 5 }{ 2 * sin 19° 27'47" } = 7.5 ; ;

8. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 14**2+2 * 15**2 - 5**2 } }{ 2 } = 14.292 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 15**2+2 * 5**2 - 14**2 } }{ 2 } = 8.718 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 14**2+2 * 5**2 - 15**2 } }{ 2 } = 7.365 ; ;
