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 °

Solution:

b=10 cm c=20 cm a=c2b2=20210210 3 cm17.3205 cm17.321 cmb=10 \ \text{cm} \ \\ c=20 \ \text{cm} \ \\ a=\sqrt{ c^2-b^2 }=\sqrt{ 20^2-10^2 } \doteq 10 \ \sqrt{ 3 } \ \text{cm} \doteq 17.3205 \ \text{cm} \doteq 17.321 \ \text{cm}
C=180(60+30)=90=90C=180 - (60+30)=90=90 ^\circ
