Angle sum

The angle sum in triangle is 180°.

α+β+γ=180°

Median

By a median is meant a straight line connecting a vertex of the triangle to the center of the opposite side. The sides of a triangle intersect at the center of gravity of the triangle. The length of the median of side a is:

ma=2b2+c2-a22

Bisecting

A bisector is a straight line which divides an angle of the triangle into two equal parts. The bisectors of a triangle intersect at the center of the circle. The length of the bisector of the angle α is:

lα=bcb+c2-a2b+c

Height hc on side c

The height is defined as a straight line (at 90°) on one side and connecting the side to the opposite corner. The length of the height on the side c is:

hc=asinβ=bsinα

Perpendicular

A perpendicular of a side is a line that divides one side of the triangle into two equal parts and is perpendicular to the side. The median of a triangle intersect at the center of the circumcircle.

Outcircle radius r

The perimeter is a circle passing through the vertices of the triangle.

r=s4cosα2cosβ2cosγ2

with

s=12a+b+c

Incircle radius ρ

The incircle is a circle that touches each side of the triangle.

ρ=s-as-bs-cs

Area A

A=12absinγ

Circumference U

U=a+b+c

A=ρs=ss-as-bs-c

Cemter line

The center line connects the centers of two triangular sides. It is parallel to the third side and half as long.

Rectangular triangle

The cathetes a and b form a right angle. In oposite to the right angle is the hypotenuse c. The theorem of Pythagoras holds:

c2=a2+b2

Area A in the rectangular triangle

A=ab2
