# Right triangle trigonometrics

Calculate the size of the remaining sides and angles of a right triangle ABC if it is given: b = 10 cm; c = 20 cm; angle alpha = 60° and the angle beta = 30° (use the Pythagorean theorem and functions sine, cosine, tangent, cotangent)

Result

a =  17.321 cm
C =  90 °
