**MathMate**, Wednesday, May 14, 2014 at 6:44amI think you mean:

In a triangle PQR. q=8cm , r=6cm . Cos(P)=1/12. Calculate the value of p.

where capital letters mean vertices, lower-case letters mean lengths of sides opposite the corresponding vertex.

Use cosine rule:

p²=q²+r²-2qr(cos(P))

and solve for p.
