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+21+23 = 49 ; ;

2. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 49 }{ 2 } = 24.5 ; ;

3. The triangle area using Heron's formula

T = sqrt{ s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 24.5 * (24.5-5)(24.5-21)(24.5-23) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 2508.19 } = 50.08 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 50.08 }{ 5 } = 20.03 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 50.08 }{ 21 } = 4.77 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 50.08 }{ 23 } = 4.35 ; ;

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{ 21**2+23**2-5**2 }{ 2 * 21 * 23 } ) = 11° 58'8" ; ; b**2 = a**2+c**2 - 2ac cos beta ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ a**2+c**2-b**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 5**2+23**2-21**2 }{ 2 * 5 * 23 } ) = 60° 34'25" ; ; gamma = 180° - alpha - beta = 180° - 11° 58'8" - 60° 34'25" = 107° 27'27" ; ;

6. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 50.08 }{ 24.5 } = 2.04 ; ;

7. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin alpha } = fraction{ 5 }{ 2 * sin 11° 58'8" } = 12.06 ; ;

8. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 21**2+2 * 23**2 - 5**2 } }{ 2 } = 21.88 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 23**2+2 * 5**2 - 21**2 } }{ 2 } = 12.913 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 21**2+2 * 5**2 - 23**2 } }{ 2 } = 10.037 ; ;
