Calculate another triangle




How did we calculate this triangle?

a = 7 ; ; b = 13 ; ; c = 16 ; ;

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

p = a+b+c = 7+13+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 * (18-7)(18-13)(18-16) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 1980 } = 44.5 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 44.5 }{ 7 } = 12.71 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 44.5 }{ 13 } = 6.85 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 44.5 }{ 16 } = 5.56 ; ;

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{ 13**2+16**2-7**2 }{ 2 * 13 * 16 } ) = 25° 19'54" ; ; b**2 = a**2+c**2 - 2ac cos beta ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ a**2+c**2-b**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 7**2+16**2-13**2 }{ 2 * 7 * 16 } ) = 52° 37' ; ; gamma = 180° - alpha - beta = 180° - 25° 19'54" - 52° 37' = 102° 3'5" ; ;

6. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 44.5 }{ 18 } = 2.47 ; ;

7. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin alpha } = fraction{ 7 }{ 2 * sin 25° 19'54" } = 8.18 ; ;

8. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 13**2+2 * 16**2 - 7**2 } }{ 2 } = 14.151 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 16**2+2 * 7**2 - 13**2 } }{ 2 } = 10.5 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 13**2+2 * 7**2 - 16**2 } }{ 2 } = 6.708 ; ;
