Isosceles triangle 8

If the rate of the sides an isosceles triangle is 7:6:7, find the base angle correct to the nearest degree.

Correct result:

B =  65 °

Solution:

a=7 b=6  cosB=b/2:a  B=180πarccos(b/2a)=180πarccos(6/27)=65=643723"a=7 \ \\ b=6 \ \\ \ \\ \cos B=b/2 : a \ \\ \ \\ B=\dfrac{ 180^\circ }{ \pi } \cdot \arccos (\dfrac{ b/2 }{ a } )=\dfrac{ 180^\circ }{ \pi } \cdot \arccos (\dfrac{ 6/2 }{ 7 } )=65 ^\circ =64^\circ 37'23"
