The right triangle

In the right triangle ABC with right angle at C we know the side lengths AC = 9 cm and BC = 7 cm. Calculate the length of the remaining side of the triangle and the size of all angles.

Correct result:

c =  11.402 cm
A =  37.874 °
B =  52.126 °

Solution:

b=9 cm a=7 cm c2=a2+b2  c=a2+b2=72+92=130=11.402 cmb=9 \ \text{cm} \ \\ a=7 \ \text{cm} \ \\ c^2=a^2+b^2 \ \\ \ \\ c=\sqrt{ a^2+b^2 }=\sqrt{ 7^2+9^2 }=\sqrt{ 130 }=11.402 \ \text{cm}
sinA=a/c  A=180πarcsin(a/c)=180πarcsin(7/11.4018)=37.874=375226"\sin A=a/c \ \\ \ \\ A=\dfrac{ 180^\circ }{ \pi } \cdot \arcsin(a/c)=\dfrac{ 180^\circ }{ \pi } \cdot \arcsin(7/11.4018)=37.874 ^\circ =37^\circ 52'26"
B=90A=9037.874=52.126=52734"B=90-A=90-37.874=52.126 ^\circ =52^\circ 7'34"
