Right triangle

It is given a right triangle
angle alpha of 90 degrees
beta angle of 55 degrees
c = 10 cm
use Pythagorean theorem to calculate sides a and b


Correct result:

a =  17.4345 cm
b =  14.2815 cm

Solution:

c=10 cm β=55 a2=b2+c2 cosβ=c/a a=c/cosβ=c/cos55 =10/cos55 =10/0.573576=17.434=17.4345 cm
b=a2c2=17.43452102=14.2815 cm
