TRICENTR - Triangle From Centroid

no tags 

Given the length of side a of a triangle and the distances from the centroid (the point of concurrence of the medians - red in the picture) to all sides: a, b and c, calculate this triangle's area and the distance (blue line) from the orthocenter (the point of concurrence of the heights - green in the picture) to the centroid.


In the first line integer n - the number of test cases (equal to about 1000). The next n lines - 4 floating point values: the length of side a, and distances from the centroid to sides a, b and c.


n lines consisting of 2 floating point values with 3 digits after the decimal point: the area of the triangle and the distance from the orthocenter to centroid.

I am finding difficulty in solving problems , please anyone suggest me what i should do advance my c++ programming skill. Can anyone suggest me the methods of solving the problems form the websites like this?
reply me on my email " ".

Use double instead of float

AC :)
Solutions are correct,perfectly fine and simple!

The solutions of this problem are not right . The person who framed the problem seems to have rounded off values somewhere in the intermediary steps . My answers for the sample input are : 149604.781 150.274
and 3.897 0.000 .

though i am getting the correct answer in my ide but i think the rounding off trchnique followed by them and my ide i different, so they r giving me W/A.

apply that the distance from the centroid to the orthocentre is twice that of the distance from the centroid to the circumcentre. so challenge is to calculate the distance from the centroid to the circumcentre.

Aren't the conditions
true when the median and the altitude is same....because centroid divides the median in the ratio 2:1.
The conditions are true for equilateral and isosceles triangle but what about the other triangles?

Is there any straight formula to calculate distance between centroid and orthocentre?? I googled up a formula but it is giving wrong answer

@ Harunur Rashid As the perpendicular distance is given from centroid
two smaller triangles forming are similar and hence
