C++ program to find the Radius of the incircle of the triangle

In this tutorial, we will be discussing a program to find the radius of the incircle of a given triangle.

For this, we will be provided with the sides of a particular triangle and our task is to find the radius of the incircle in that triangle.

The formula for finding the radius of incircle is

area of the triangle/half perimeter of the triangle

Example

#include <bits/stdc++.h>
using namespace std;
float calc_radius(float a, float b, float c) {
if (a < 0 || b < 0 || c < 0)
return -1;
//half perimeter of triangle
float p = (a + b + c) / 2;
//area of triangle
float area = sqrt(p * (p - a) * (p - b) * (p - c));
float radius = area / p;
}
int main() {
float a = 4, b = 7, c = 9;
cout << calc_radius(a, b, c) << endl;
return 0;
}
