Calculate another triangle




How did we calculate this triangle?

a = 5 ; ; b = 21 ; ; c = 25 ; ;

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

p = a+b+c = 5+21+25 = 51 ; ;

2. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 51 }{ 2 } = 25.5 ; ;

3. The triangle area using Heron's formula

T = sqrt{ s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 25.5 * (25.5-5)(25.5-21)(25.5-25) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 1176.19 } = 34.3 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 34.3 }{ 5 } = 13.72 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 34.3 }{ 21 } = 3.27 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 34.3 }{ 25 } = 2.74 ; ;

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+25**2-5**2 }{ 2 * 21 * 25 } ) = 7° 30'26" ; ; b**2 = a**2+c**2 - 2ac cos beta ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ a**2+c**2-b**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 5**2+25**2-21**2 }{ 2 * 5 * 25 } ) = 33° 16'48" ; ; gamma = 180° - alpha - beta = 180° - 7° 30'26" - 33° 16'48" = 139° 12'47" ; ;

6. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 34.3 }{ 25.5 } = 1.34 ; ;

7. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin alpha } = fraction{ 5 }{ 2 * sin 7° 30'26" } = 19.14 ; ;

8. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 21**2+2 * 25**2 - 5**2 } }{ 2 } = 22.951 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 25**2+2 * 5**2 - 21**2 } }{ 2 } = 14.654 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 21**2+2 * 5**2 - 25**2 } }{ 2 } = 8.761 ; ;
