Simple Trigonometry – Finding Sides of Right Angled Triangles Simple trigonometry can be used with right angled triangles to a side

given a side and one of the interior angles other than the right angle,

With the sides of the triangle as labelled above, we can use one of the formulae:Example: If we haveandand want to find
