Solving a triangle, given two sides and the measure of the included angle
Let say you have a triangle
A = 41 , side b = 3.41 and c = 5.83
Can you use pythagoras theorem to find the side a? and how can you find Angle B and C
You can still ask an expert for help

Step 1
To find side a use Law Of Cosines: a 2 = b 2 + c 2 2 b c cos α
Step 2
To find angles β and γ use Sine Law: a sin α = b sin β = c sin γ

So I have a right angled triangle as shown in the image

What I have to prove is that the angle C is not 60 degrees. I am not sure if I have to use Pythagoras theorem or something else.

I am trying to prove the inscribed angle theorem using vectors. I fixed the dots A = ( cos θ , sin θ ), and B = ( cos φ , sin φ ), and I took another point C = ( cos ψ , sin ψ ) in the biggest arc AB.
My idea was to calculate A C , B C | A B | | B C | , what according to my calculations is 1 + cos ( θ φ ) cos ( ψ θ ) cos ( φ ψ ) 2 1 + cos ( θ ψ ) cos ( φ ψ ) cos ( θ ψ ) cos ( φ ψ ) ..
My main difficulty here is the square root, which I can't get rid of. Does someone know how to proceed from here?Or maybe to solve the problem with vectors with a different approach?

What is the angle of b?

So first off, I know how to find the missing length of the leg of the triangle using the pythagorean theorem. 6 2 + b 2 = c 2 .
36 + b 2 = 100
100 36 = 64
64 = 8
So angle angle A is going to be adjacent hypotenuse .
cos ( angle ) = adjacent hypotenuse
cos ( angle ) = 8 10
cos 1 ( 0.8 ) = 36.86989765
Here is where I run into my problem. So assuming that B is going to be opposite hypotenuse .
sin ( angle ) = 6 10
sin 1 ( 0.6 ) = 36.86989765
However, when I use the law of cosines I get the same answer for angle A, but a different angle for B, which comes out as 53.13. It would be greatly appreciated if someone could help me figure out where my mistakes are.
