Hi all(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have a question concerning Euler's triangle formula, where the distance (d) between the incenter and circumcenter of a triangle is given as d2 = R(R-2r), with R being the circumradius and r the inradius. I suck at algebra and I need to know how to solve this if I only know the distance (d) and nothing else. How do I compute R and r from just the distance?

Many thanks

Nigel
