**Illustration 1: Which of the following pieces of data does not uniquely determine an acute angled triangle ABC (where R is the radius of the circumcircle)? (2002)****1. a, sin A, sin B****2. a, b, c****3. a, sin B, R****4. a, sin A, R****Solution:** We shall discuss all the four parts one by one.

1. When a, sin A, sin B are given it becomes possible to find the rest of the sides as

b = a sin B/ sin A,

c = a sin C/ sin A

So, all the three sides are unique.

2. The three sides can uniquely make an acute angled triangle.

3. a, sin B, R is given and so the data is sufficient for computing the remaining sides and triangles.

b = 2R sin B, sin A = a sin B/b

So, sin C can be determined. Hence, this also implies that the side c can be uniquely

determined.

4. a, sin A, R is given, data is insufficient to find the other sides and angles

b/ sin B = c/ sin C = 2R

Hence, it is clear that this could not determine the exact values of a and b.

**Illustration 2: Consider a triangle ABC and let a, b and c denote the lengths of the sides opposite to vertices A, B and C respectively. Suppose, a = 6, b = 10 and the area of the triangle is 15âˆš3. If ACB is obtuse and if r denotes the radius of the incircle of the triangle, then find the value of r ^{2}. (2010)**

Now, sin C = âˆš3/2 and C is given to be obtuse

This gives C = 2Ï€/3 = âˆš(a

= âˆš6

= 14

Hence, r = ?/s which means

**Illustration 3: If ? is the area of triangle with sides of length a, b and c then show that ? â‰¤ 1/4 âˆš (a+b+c) abc. Also show that the equality occurs in the above inequality if and only if a = b = c. (2001)****Solution:** The area of the triangle is ? and the lengths of the sides are a, b and c.

Now, it is given that ? â‰¤ 1/4 âˆš(a+b+c) abc

Hence, 1/4?. âˆš(a+b+c) abc â‰¥ 1

So, (a+b+c) abc /16?^{2} â‰¥ 1

Hence, 2sabc/ 16?^{2} â‰¥ 1

So, sabc/ 8s(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) â‰¥ 1

abc/ 8(s-a)(s-b)(s-c) â‰¥ 1

Hence, abc/ 8 â‰¥ (s-a)(s-b)(s-c)

Now, put (s-a) = x â‰¥ 0, (s-b) = y â‰¥ 0, (s-c) = z â‰¥ 0

Hence, (s-a) + (s-b) = x + y

So, this gives 2x â€“ a â€“ b = x + y

So, c = x + y

Similarly, as a = y + z, b = x + z, so we get,

(x+y)/2. (y+z)/2. (x+z)/2 â‰¥ xyz which is true

Now equality will hold only if x = y = z i.e. only if a = b = c.

So, the equality will hold only if the triangle is equilateral.
