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+23+26 = 56 ; ;

2. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 56 }{ 2 } = 28 ; ;

3. The triangle area using Heron's formula

T = sqrt{ s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 28 * (28-7)(28-23)(28-26) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 5880 } = 76.68 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 76.68 }{ 7 } = 21.91 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 76.68 }{ 23 } = 6.67 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 76.68 }{ 26 } = 5.9 ; ;

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{ 23**2+26**2-7**2 }{ 2 * 23 * 26 } ) = 14° 51'36" ; ; b**2 = a**2+c**2 - 2ac cos beta ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ a**2+c**2-b**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 7**2+26**2-23**2 }{ 2 * 7 * 26 } ) = 57° 25'16" ; ; gamma = 180° - alpha - beta = 180° - 14° 51'36" - 57° 25'16" = 107° 43'8" ; ;

6. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 76.68 }{ 28 } = 2.74 ; ;

7. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin alpha } = fraction{ 7 }{ 2 * sin 14° 51'36" } = 13.65 ; ;

8. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 23**2+2 * 26**2 - 7**2 } }{ 2 } = 24.295 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 26**2+2 * 7**2 - 23**2 } }{ 2 } = 15.174 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 23**2+2 * 7**2 - 26**2 } }{ 2 } = 10.954 ; ;
