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+7+9 = 23 ; ;

2. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 23 }{ 2 } = 11.5 ; ;

3. The triangle area using Heron's formula

T = sqrt{ s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 11.5 * (11.5-7)(11.5-7)(11.5-9) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 582.19 } = 24.13 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 24.13 }{ 7 } = 6.89 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 24.13 }{ 7 } = 6.89 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 24.13 }{ 9 } = 5.36 ; ;

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{ 7**2+9**2-7**2 }{ 2 * 7 * 9 } ) = 49° 59'41" ; ; b**2 = a**2+c**2 - 2ac cos beta ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ a**2+c**2-b**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 7**2+9**2-7**2 }{ 2 * 7 * 9 } ) = 49° 59'41" ; ; gamma = 180° - alpha - beta = 180° - 49° 59'41" - 49° 59'41" = 80° 37" ; ;

6. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 24.13 }{ 11.5 } = 2.1 ; ;

7. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin alpha } = fraction{ 7 }{ 2 * sin 49° 59'41" } = 4.57 ; ;

8. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 7**2+2 * 9**2 - 7**2 } }{ 2 } = 7.263 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 9**2+2 * 7**2 - 7**2 } }{ 2 } = 7.263 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 7**2+2 * 7**2 - 9**2 } }{ 2 } = 5.362 ; ;
