Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0then with sine, cosine, tangent, you can find the angles

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes, by using SAS congruents and those stuff. like.. a^2 = b^2 + c^2 2ab Cos A

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0im not really sure how to use them to find the angles instead of the other way around

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0But if you know it's a right triangle, you don't use the cosine law

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so how do i use the trigonometric ratios to find the angles if i only know the right angle?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0then you use inverse sine/cosine/tangent

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The sum of the interior angles of a triangle are equal to 180 degree. To find the third angle of a triangle when the other two angles are known subtract the number of degrees in the other two angles from 180 degree :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Example: How many degrees are in the third angle of a triangle whose other two angles are 40degree and 65degree ? Answer: 180degree  40degree 65degree = 75degree

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i only know the 90 degree angle... that's not what im looking for

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\sin \theta = \frac{1}{2}\]\[\sin^{1}\sin \theta = \sin^{1} \frac{1}{2} \implies \theta = \sin^{1} \frac{1}{2}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so both sides are multiplied by the inverse sine?

anonymous
