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 = 6+14+16 = 36 ; ;

2. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 36 }{ 2 } = 18 ; ;

3. The triangle area using Heron's formula

T = sqrt{ s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 18 * (18-6)(18-14)(18-16) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 1728 } = 41.57 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 41.57 }{ 6 } = 13.86 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 41.57 }{ 14 } = 5.94 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 41.57 }{ 16 } = 5.2 ; ;

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{ 14**2+16**2-6**2 }{ 2 * 14 * 16 } ) = 21° 47'12" ; ; b**2 = a**2+c**2 - 2ac cos beta ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ a**2+c**2-b**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 6**2+16**2-14**2 }{ 2 * 6 * 16 } ) = 60° ; ; gamma = 180° - alpha - beta = 180° - 21° 47'12" - 60° = 98° 12'48" ; ;

6. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 41.57 }{ 18 } = 2.31 ; ;

7. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin alpha } = fraction{ 6 }{ 2 * sin 21° 47'12" } = 8.08 ; ;

8. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 14**2+2 * 16**2 - 6**2 } }{ 2 } = 14.731 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 16**2+2 * 6**2 - 14**2 } }{ 2 } = 9.849 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 14**2+2 * 6**2 - 16**2 } }{ 2 } = 7.211 ; ;
