Calculate another triangle




How did we calculate this triangle?

a = 5 ; ; b = 9 ; ; c = 9 ; ;

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

p = a+b+c = 5+9+9 = 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)(11.5-9)(11.5-9) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 467.19 } = 21.61 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 21.61 }{ 5 } = 8.65 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 21.61 }{ 9 } = 4.8 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 21.61 }{ 9 } = 4.8 ; ;

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+9**2-5**2 }{ 2 * 9 * 9 } ) = 32° 15'19" ; ; b**2 = a**2+c**2 - 2ac cos beta ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ a**2+c**2-b**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 5**2+9**2-9**2 }{ 2 * 5 * 9 } ) = 73° 52'21" ; ; gamma = 180° - alpha - beta = 180° - 32° 15'19" - 73° 52'21" = 73° 52'21" ; ;

6. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 21.61 }{ 11.5 } = 1.88 ; ;

7. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin alpha } = fraction{ 5 }{ 2 * sin 32° 15'19" } = 4.68 ; ;

8. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 9**2+2 * 9**2 - 5**2 } }{ 2 } = 8.646 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 9**2+2 * 5**2 - 9**2 } }{ 2 } = 5.723 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 9**2+2 * 5**2 - 9**2 } }{ 2 } = 5.723 ; ;
