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 = 7+20+20 = 47 ; ;

2. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 47 }{ 2 } = 23.5 ; ;

3. The triangle area using Heron's formula

T = sqrt{ s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 23.5 * (23.5-7)(23.5-20)(23.5-20) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 4749.94 } = 68.92 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 68.92 }{ 7 } = 19.69 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 68.92 }{ 20 } = 6.89 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 68.92 }{ 20 } = 6.89 ; ;

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{ 20**2+20**2-7**2 }{ 2 * 20 * 20 } ) = 20° 9'26" ; ; b**2 = a**2+c**2 - 2ac cos beta ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ a**2+c**2-b**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 7**2+20**2-20**2 }{ 2 * 7 * 20 } ) = 79° 55'17" ; ;
 gamma = 180° - alpha - beta = 180° - 20° 9'26" - 79° 55'17" = 79° 55'17" ; ;

6. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 68.92 }{ 23.5 } = 2.93 ; ;

7. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin alpha } = fraction{ 7 }{ 2 * sin 20° 9'26" } = 10.16 ; ;

8. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 20**2+2 * 20**2 - 7**2 } }{ 2 } = 19.691 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 20**2+2 * 7**2 - 20**2 } }{ 2 } = 11.158 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 20**2+2 * 7**2 - 20**2 } }{ 2 } = 11.158 ; ;
