 # Equilateral Triangle side = 5

## Enter Side (a) Given an equilateral triangle with side (a) equal to 5, calculate the other relevant items in this triangle

P = 3a
P = 3 x 5
P = 15

## Calculate Semiperimeter s:

 s  = P 2

 s  = 15 2

s = 7.5

## Calculate Area (A):

 A  = a2√3 4

 A  = 52√3 4

 A  = 25√3 4

 A  = 43.3013 4

A = 10.825317547305

## Calculate Bisector

 ha-ma-ta  = a√3 2

 ha-ma-ta  = 8.66025 2

ha-ma-ta = 4.3301270189222

 R  = a√3 3

 R  = 8.66025 3

R = 2.8867513459481

 r  = a√3 6

 r  = 8.66025 6

r = 1.4433756729741

P = 15
s = 7.5
A = 5

P = 15
s = 7.5
A = 5

### How does the Equilateral Triangle Calculator work?

Given a side (a), this calculates the following items of the equilateral triangle:
