Calculate another triangle




How did we calculate this triangle?

a = 5 ; ; b = 7 ; ; c = 11 ; ;

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

p = a+b+c = 5+7+11 = 23 ; ;

2. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 23 }{ 2 } = 11.5 ; ;

3. The triangle area using Heron's formula

T = sqrt{ s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 11.5 * (11.5-5)(11.5-7)(11.5-11) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 168.19 } = 12.97 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 12.97 }{ 5 } = 5.19 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 12.97 }{ 7 } = 3.71 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 12.97 }{ 11 } = 2.36 ; ;

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{ 7**2+11**2-5**2 }{ 2 * 7 * 11 } ) = 19° 41'6" ; ; b**2 = a**2+c**2 - 2ac cos beta ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ a**2+c**2-b**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 5**2+11**2-7**2 }{ 2 * 5 * 11 } ) = 28° 8'15" ; ; gamma = 180° - alpha - beta = 180° - 19° 41'6" - 28° 8'15" = 132° 10'39" ; ;

6. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 12.97 }{ 11.5 } = 1.13 ; ;

7. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin alpha } = fraction{ 5 }{ 2 * sin 19° 41'6" } = 7.42 ; ;

8. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 7**2+2 * 11**2 - 5**2 } }{ 2 } = 8.874 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 11**2+2 * 5**2 - 7**2 } }{ 2 } = 7.794 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 7**2+2 * 5**2 - 11**2 } }{ 2 } = 2.598 ; ;
