6. Construct a Triangle Given Its Circumradius, Inradius and the Length of Its Base
This Demonstration constructs a triangle
given the circumradius
, inradius
and the length of the base
.
Construction
Draw a circle
of radius
and a chord
of length
.
Step 1: Let
be the midpoint of
and let the right bisector of
meet
at the point
.
Step 2: Draw a second circle
with center
through
and
. Draw a (green) line
perpendicular to
at
so that
. Clearly
is parallel to
.
Step 3: Let
be one of the points of intersection of
and
. The point
is the intersection of
and the ray
.
Verification
Let
,
and
.
Since arc
equals arc
,
bisects
and
. Also
. The triangle
is isosceles, so
. Then
. So
is the incenter of
with distance
from
.
