To solve this example are needed these knowledge from mathematics:

Most natural application of trigonometry and trigonometric functions is a calculation of the triangles. Common and less common calculations of different types of triangles offers our triangle calculator. Word trigonometry comes from Greek and literally means triangle calculation. Two vectors given by its magnitudes and by included angle can be added by our vector sum calculator.
