Using this Triangle side angle calculator, you can calculate the sides or angles in a triangle. A triangle is a polygon with three sides. It has three vertices and, therefore, three angles. While being pretty basic, the shape forms the crux of some advanced mathematical concepts and applications.

## Different ways to calculate sides and angles for a triangle

A triangle has 3 sides and three angles. Following are a few methods to calculate these values:

1. Law of cosines — The cosine of an angle is related to all three sides.
2. Law of sines — Relation between the length of the sides and the sine of the angles.
3. Pythagorean theorem — A case of cosine law for when the third angle is equal to 90°.

In addition to this, you can also use angle sum property and trigonometric ratios to find individual sides based on the data available to you.

## Using the Triangle side angle calculator

In this calculator, we'll use:

• Three sides to find angles;
• One angle and two sides to find other side and angles;
• Two angles to find the third.

Let's find the third side if one of the angles is 30°, and the sides are 4 and 6.

1. Select the given data as angle and two sides.
2. Enter the first angle, $\alpha = 30°$.
3. Insert the first side, $a = 4$.
4. Insert the second side, $b = 6$.
5. The calculator will return the third side and two angles as 7.842, 48.59°, and 101.4°, respectively.

## FAQ

### How do I find the third angle of a triangle?

To find the third angle of a triangle:

2. Subtract the sum of two angles from 180° to obtain the third angle using the angle sum property of a triangle.

### What are the angles of triangle if three sides are 4, 5, and 6?

The three angles for the triangles are 41.41°, 55.77°, and 82.82°. You can find these angles using the cosine law, such that angle, α = arccos [(b² + c² - a²)/(2bc)] = arccos[(6² + 5² - 4²)/(2 × 5 × 6)] = 41.41°. Similarly, the other two angles can be found.
