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 = 9+21+23 = 53 ; ;

2. Semiperimeter of the triangle

s = fraction{ o }{ 2 } = fraction{ 53 }{ 2 } = 26.5 ; ;

3. The triangle area using Heron's formula

T = sqrt{ s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 26.5 * (26.5-9)(26.5-21)(26.5-23) } ; ; T = sqrt{ 8927.19 } = 94.48 ; ;

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

T = fraction{ a h _a }{ 2 } ; ; h _a = fraction{ 2 T }{ a } = fraction{ 2 * 94.48 }{ 9 } = 21 ; ; h _b = fraction{ 2 T }{ b } = fraction{ 2 * 94.48 }{ 21 } = 9 ; ; h _c = fraction{ 2 T }{ c } = fraction{ 2 * 94.48 }{ 23 } = 8.22 ; ;

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{ 21**2+23**2-9**2 }{ 2 * 21 * 23 } ) = 23° 1'53" ; ; b**2 = a**2+c**2 - 2ac cos beta ; ; beta = arccos( fraction{ a**2+c**2-b**2 }{ 2ac } ) = arccos( fraction{ 9**2+23**2-21**2 }{ 2 * 9 * 23 } ) = 65° 54'27" ; ;
 gamma = 180° - alpha - beta = 180° - 23° 1'53" - 65° 54'27" = 91° 3'40" ; ;

6. Inradius

T = rs ; ; r = fraction{ T }{ s } = fraction{ 94.48 }{ 26.5 } = 3.57 ; ;

7. Circumradius

R = fraction{ a }{ 2 * sin alpha } = fraction{ 9 }{ 2 * sin 23° 1'53" } = 11.5 ; ;

8. Calculation of medians

m_a = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2c**2 - a**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 21**2+2 * 23**2 - 9**2 } }{ 2 } = 21.558 ; ; m_b = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 c**2+2a**2 - b**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 23**2+2 * 9**2 - 21**2 } }{ 2 } = 13.955 ; ; m_c = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 b**2+2a**2 - c**2 } }{ 2 } = fraction{ sqrt{ 2 * 21**2+2 * 9**2 - 23**2 } }{ 2 } = 11.347 ; ;
