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+22+29 = 59 ; ;

2. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 59 }{ 2 } = 29.5 ; ;

3. The triangle area using Heron's formula

T = sqrt{ s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 29.5 * (29.5-8)(29.5-22)(29.5-29) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 2378.44 } = 48.77 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 48.77 }{ 8 } = 12.19 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 48.77 }{ 22 } = 4.43 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 48.77 }{ 29 } = 3.36 ; ;

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{ 22**2+29**2-8**2 }{ 2 * 22 * 29 } ) = 8° 47'38" ; ; b**2 = a**2+c**2 - 2ac cos beta ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ a**2+c**2-b**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 8**2+29**2-22**2 }{ 2 * 8 * 29 } ) = 24° 51'41" ; ; gamma = 180° - alpha - beta = 180° - 8° 47'38" - 24° 51'41" = 146° 20'41" ; ;

6. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 48.77 }{ 29.5 } = 1.65 ; ;

7. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin alpha } = fraction{ 8 }{ 2 * sin 8° 47'38" } = 26.16 ; ;

8. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 22**2+2 * 29**2 - 8**2 } }{ 2 } = 25.426 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 29**2+2 * 8**2 - 22**2 } }{ 2 } = 18.207 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 22**2+2 * 8**2 - 29**2 } }{ 2 } = 7.984 ; ;
