given triangle ABC with AB=7cm, BC=8cm and AC=9cm calculate
1. the size of the largest angle
2. the area of the triangle

  • trigonometry -

    the largest angle is opposite the largest side, so set your cosine equation up this way:

    9^2 = 7^2 + 8^2 - 2(7)(8)cosØ

    once you have that angles use the area formula
    area = (1/2)(a)(b)sinØ , where Ø is the contained angle.

  • trigonometry -

    Find the a triangle whose sides are 7cm,8cm,and 9cm
