Incircle The internal circle tangent to the three sides and the incenter as center.

The radius of the inscribed circle is r = A/s where A = the area of the triangle and s = the semi-perimeter = (a + b + c)/2, a, b, and c being the three sides.

The radius of the inscribed circle may also be derived from r = ab/(a + b + c).

The radius of the inscribed circle may also be derived from the particular m and n used in deriving a Pythagoraen Triple triangle by r = n(m - n).

If x, y, and z are the points of contact of the incircle with the sides of the triangl e A, B, C, then Cx = Cy = s - c, Bx = Bz = s - b, and Ay = Az = s - a.

The radius of an inscribed circle within a right triangle is equal to r = A/s = s - c where s = (a+b+c)/2 and c = the hypotenuse.

Good work - Jack.
