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+18 = 37 ; ;

2. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 37 }{ 2 } = 18.5 ; ;

3. The triangle area using Heron's formula

T = sqrt{ s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 18.5 * (18.5-5)(18.5-14)(18.5-18) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 561.94 } = 23.71 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 23.71 }{ 5 } = 9.48 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 23.71 }{ 14 } = 3.39 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 23.71 }{ 18 } = 2.63 ; ;

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+18**2-5**2 }{ 2 * 14 * 18 } ) = 10° 50'39" ; ; b**2 = a**2+c**2 - 2ac cos beta ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ a**2+c**2-b**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 5**2+18**2-14**2 }{ 2 * 5 * 18 } ) = 31° 47'18" ; ; gamma = 180° - alpha - beta = 180° - 10° 50'39" - 31° 47'18" = 137° 22'3" ; ;

6. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 23.71 }{ 18.5 } = 1.28 ; ;

7. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin alpha } = fraction{ 5 }{ 2 * sin 10° 50'39" } = 13.29 ; ;

8. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 14**2+2 * 18**2 - 5**2 } }{ 2 } = 15.93 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 18**2+2 * 5**2 - 14**2 } }{ 2 } = 11.203 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 14**2+2 * 5**2 - 18**2 } }{ 2 } = 5.431 ; ;
