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+17+22 = 45 ; ;

2. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 45 }{ 2 } = 22.5 ; ;

3. The triangle area using Heron's formula

T = sqrt{ s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 22.5 * (22.5-6)(22.5-17)(22.5-22) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 1020.94 } = 31.95 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 31.95 }{ 6 } = 10.65 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 31.95 }{ 17 } = 3.76 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 31.95 }{ 22 } = 2.9 ; ;

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{ 17**2+22**2-6**2 }{ 2 * 17 * 22 } ) = 9° 50'18" ; ; b**2 = a**2+c**2 - 2ac cos beta ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ a**2+c**2-b**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 6**2+22**2-17**2 }{ 2 * 6 * 22 } ) = 28° 57'18" ; ; gamma = 180° - alpha - beta = 180° - 9° 50'18" - 28° 57'18" = 141° 12'24" ; ;

6. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 31.95 }{ 22.5 } = 1.42 ; ;

7. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin alpha } = fraction{ 6 }{ 2 * sin 9° 50'18" } = 17.56 ; ;

8. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 17**2+2 * 22**2 - 6**2 } }{ 2 } = 19.429 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 22**2+2 * 6**2 - 17**2 } }{ 2 } = 13.702 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 17**2+2 * 6**2 - 22**2 } }{ 2 } = 6.442 ; ;
