Calculate another triangle




How did we calculate this triangle?

a = 6 ; ; b = 17 ; ; c = 18 ; ;

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

p = a+b+c = 6+17+18 = 41 ; ;

2. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 41 }{ 2 } = 20.5 ; ;

3. The triangle area using Heron's formula

T = sqrt{ s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 20.5 * (20.5-6)(20.5-17)(20.5-18) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 2600.94 } = 51 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 51 }{ 6 } = 17 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 51 }{ 17 } = 6 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 51 }{ 18 } = 5.67 ; ;

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{ a**2-b**2-c**2 }{ 2bc } ) = arccos( fraction{ 6**2-17**2-18**2 }{ 2 * 17 * 18 } ) = 19° 28'16" ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ b**2-a**2-c**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 17**2-6**2-18**2 }{ 2 * 6 * 18 } ) = 70° 48'36" ; ; gamma = arccos( fraction{ c**2-a**2-b**2 }{ 2ba } ) = arccos( fraction{ 18**2-6**2-17**2 }{ 2 * 17 * 6 } ) = 89° 43'9" ; ;

6. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 51 }{ 20.5 } = 2.49 ; ;

7. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin( alpha ) } = fraction{ 6 }{ 2 * sin 19° 28'16" } = 9 ; ;
