Calculate another triangle




How did we calculate this triangle?

a = 7 ; ; b = 15 ; ; c = 16 ; ;

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

p = a+b+c = 7+15+16 = 38 ; ;

2. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 38 }{ 2 } = 19 ; ;

3. The triangle area using Heron's formula

T = sqrt{ s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 19 * (19-7)(19-15)(19-16) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 2736 } = 52.31 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 52.31 }{ 7 } = 14.94 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 52.31 }{ 15 } = 6.97 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 52.31 }{ 16 } = 6.54 ; ;

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{ 15**2+16**2-7**2 }{ 2 * 15 * 16 } ) = 25° 50'31" ; ; b**2 = a**2+c**2 - 2ac cos beta ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ a**2+c**2-b**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 7**2+16**2-15**2 }{ 2 * 7 * 16 } ) = 69° 4'31" ; ; gamma = 180° - alpha - beta = 180° - 25° 50'31" - 69° 4'31" = 85° 4'58" ; ;

6. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 52.31 }{ 19 } = 2.75 ; ;

7. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin alpha } = fraction{ 7 }{ 2 * sin 25° 50'31" } = 8.03 ; ;

8. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 15**2+2 * 16**2 - 7**2 } }{ 2 } = 15.108 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 16**2+2 * 7**2 - 15**2 } }{ 2 } = 9.811 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 15**2+2 * 7**2 - 16**2 } }{ 2 } = 8.544 ; ;
