Angles by cosine law

Calculate the size of the angles of the triangle ABC, if it is given by: a = 3 cm; b = 5 cm; c = 7 cm (use the sine and cosine theorem).

Correct answer:

A =  21.7868 °
B =  38.2132 °
C =  120 °

Step-by-step explanation:

a=3 b=5 c=7 A1=arccos((b2+c2a2)/(2 b c))=arccos((52+7232)/(2 5 7))0.3803 A=A1  °=A1 180π   °=0.3803 180π   °=21.787  °=21.7868°=21°4712"
