Calculate another triangle




How did we calculate this triangle?

a = 7 ; ; b = 20 ; ; c = 24 ; ;

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

p = a+b+c = 7+20+24 = 51 ; ;

2. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 51 }{ 2 } = 25.5 ; ;

3. The triangle area using Heron's formula

T = sqrt{ s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 25.5 * (25.5-7)(25.5-20)(25.5-24) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 3891.94 } = 62.39 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 62.39 }{ 7 } = 17.82 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 62.39 }{ 20 } = 6.24 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 62.39 }{ 24 } = 5.2 ; ;

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+24**2-7**2 }{ 2 * 20 * 24 } ) = 15° 3'59" ; ; b**2 = a**2+c**2 - 2ac cos beta ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ a**2+c**2-b**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 7**2+24**2-20**2 }{ 2 * 7 * 24 } ) = 47° 57'38" ; ; gamma = 180° - alpha - beta = 180° - 15° 3'59" - 47° 57'38" = 116° 58'23" ; ;

6. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 62.39 }{ 25.5 } = 2.45 ; ;

7. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin alpha } = fraction{ 7 }{ 2 * sin 15° 3'59" } = 13.46 ; ;

8. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 20**2+2 * 24**2 - 7**2 } }{ 2 } = 21.812 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 24**2+2 * 7**2 - 20**2 } }{ 2 } = 14.577 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 20**2+2 * 7**2 - 24**2 } }{ 2 } = 8.972 ; ;
