**MathMate**, Tuesday, November 15, 2011 at 10:14pmSo we have a trapezoid ABCD, in which

AB=unknown

BC=10,

CD=14

DA=10

and

AC=16.

Sketch the triangle ACD for which the lengths of all three sides are known.

Using the cosine rule, calculate the cosine of A using

cosA=(AC²+AD²-CD²)/(2*AC*AD)

and hence calculate ∠A.
