## SugarRainbow 2 years ago how to do AAS for triangle?

1. lgbasallote

you do mean any triangle right?

2. SugarRainbow

yes

3. SugarRainbow

this is my triangle now |dw:1352099872716:dw|

4. SugarRainbow

so like how do i get the other sides

5. Sjano

if it's 45 degrees it mean both sides going towards 90degree corner is the same length and the tilted side is the square root of (6^2 + 6^2)

6. SugarRainbow

but what if it wasn't the same and i was only given a side and two angles how do i do it what's the formula for that?

You need to use Pythagorean's Theorem (hypotenuse squared = sum of other two sides squared; c^2 = a^2 + b^2) and some cleverness. Angles will generally be some multiple of 15 degrees (such as 15, 30, 45, or 60). If the triangle has angles of 30, 60, and 90 degrees, then the side opposite the 60 degree angle will be twice as long as the side opposite the 30 degree angle. A similar fact hold true for angles of other ratios (such as 15 and 75, which would be 1:4 instead of 1:2).
