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+9+12 = 26 ; ;

2. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 26 }{ 2 } = 13 ; ;

3. The triangle area using Heron's formula

T = sqrt{ s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 13 * (13-5)(13-9)(13-12) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 416 } = 20.4 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 20.4 }{ 5 } = 8.16 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 20.4 }{ 9 } = 4.53 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 20.4 }{ 12 } = 3.4 ; ;

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{ 9**2+12**2-5**2 }{ 2 * 9 * 12 } ) = 22° 11'30" ; ; b**2 = a**2+c**2 - 2ac cos beta ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ a**2+c**2-b**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 5**2+12**2-9**2 }{ 2 * 5 * 12 } ) = 42° 50' ; ; gamma = 180° - alpha - beta = 180° - 22° 11'30" - 42° 50' = 114° 58'30" ; ;

6. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 20.4 }{ 13 } = 1.57 ; ;

7. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin alpha } = fraction{ 5 }{ 2 * sin 22° 11'30" } = 6.62 ; ;

8. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 9**2+2 * 12**2 - 5**2 } }{ 2 } = 10.308 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 12**2+2 * 5**2 - 9**2 } }{ 2 } = 8.016 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 9**2+2 * 5**2 - 12**2 } }{ 2 } = 4.123 ; ;
