Calculate another triangle




How did we calculate this triangle?

a = 8 ; ; b = 26 ; ; c = 30 ; ;

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

p = a+b+c = 8+26+30 = 64 ; ;

2. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 64 }{ 2 } = 32 ; ;

3. The triangle area using Heron's formula

T = sqrt{ s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 32 * (32-8)(32-26)(32-30) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 9216 } = 96 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 96 }{ 8 } = 24 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 96 }{ 26 } = 7.38 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 96 }{ 30 } = 6.4 ; ;

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{ a**2-b**2-c**2 }{ 2bc } ) = arccos( fraction{ 8**2-26**2-30**2 }{ 2 * 26 * 30 } ) = 14° 15' ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ b**2-a**2-c**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 26**2-8**2-30**2 }{ 2 * 8 * 30 } ) = 53° 7'48" ; ; gamma = arccos( fraction{ c**2-a**2-b**2 }{ 2ba } ) = arccos( fraction{ 30**2-8**2-26**2 }{ 2 * 26 * 8 } ) = 112° 37'11" ; ;

6. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 96 }{ 32 } = 3 ; ;

7. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin( alpha ) } = fraction{ 8 }{ 2 * sin 14° 15' } = 16.25 ; ;
