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 = 8+11+16 = 35 ; ;

2. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 35 }{ 2 } = 17.5 ; ;

3. The triangle area using Heron's formula

T = sqrt{ s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 17.5 * (17.5-8)(17.5-11)(17.5-16) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 1620.94 } = 40.26 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 40.26 }{ 8 } = 10.07 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 40.26 }{ 11 } = 7.32 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 40.26 }{ 16 } = 5.03 ; ;

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{ 11**2+16**2-8**2 }{ 2 * 11 * 16 } ) = 27° 13'36" ; ; b**2 = a**2+c**2 - 2ac cos beta ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ a**2+c**2-b**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 8**2+16**2-11**2 }{ 2 * 8 * 16 } ) = 38° 58'55" ; ; gamma = 180° - alpha - beta = 180° - 27° 13'36" - 38° 58'55" = 113° 47'29" ; ;

6. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 40.26 }{ 17.5 } = 2.3 ; ;

7. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin alpha } = fraction{ 8 }{ 2 * sin 27° 13'36" } = 8.74 ; ;

8. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 11**2+2 * 16**2 - 8**2 } }{ 2 } = 13.134 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 16**2+2 * 8**2 - 11**2 } }{ 2 } = 11.391 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 11**2+2 * 8**2 - 16**2 } }{ 2 } = 5.339 ; ;
