Calculate another triangle




How did we calculate this triangle?

a = 7 ; ; b = 8 ; ; c = 8 ; ;

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

p = a+b+c = 7+8+8 = 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)(11.5-8)(11.5-8) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 633.94 } = 25.18 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 25.18 }{ 7 } = 7.19 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 25.18 }{ 8 } = 6.29 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 25.18 }{ 8 } = 6.29 ; ;

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{ 8**2+8**2-7**2 }{ 2 * 8 * 8 } ) = 51° 53'20" ; ; b**2 = a**2+c**2 - 2ac cos beta ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ a**2+c**2-b**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 7**2+8**2-8**2 }{ 2 * 7 * 8 } ) = 64° 3'20" ; ; gamma = 180° - alpha - beta = 180° - 51° 53'20" - 64° 3'20" = 64° 3'20" ; ;

6. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 25.18 }{ 11.5 } = 2.19 ; ;

7. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin alpha } = fraction{ 7 }{ 2 * sin 51° 53'20" } = 4.45 ; ;

8. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 8**2+2 * 8**2 - 7**2 } }{ 2 } = 7.194 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 8**2+2 * 7**2 - 8**2 } }{ 2 } = 6.364 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 8**2+2 * 7**2 - 8**2 } }{ 2 } = 6.364 ; ;
