1 Lesson 1.3: Tringle Trigonometry We now extend te teory of rigt tringle trigonometry to non-rigt or olique tringles. Of te six omponents wi form tringle, tree sides nd tree ngles, te possiilities for omintion of ny tree of te omponents re two ngles nd side 1. two ngles nd side inluded y te ngles (S). two ngles nd side not inluded y te ngles (S) two sides nd n ngle 3. two sides nd n ngle opposite one of te sides (SS) 4. two sides nd n ngle inluded y te sides (SS) 5. tree sides (SSS) 6. tree ngles () Geometrilly, te first five of tese ses will determine tringle of speifi dimensions. Tree ngles will not. (onsider te possiilities for similr tringles.) In oter words, given ny tree omponents of tringle, WITH TH XPTION of tree ngles (), we n solve te tringle. In te first tree ses listed S, S, SS we n use te Lw of Sines to solve te tringle. In ses 4 nd 5 SS nd SSS we n use te Lw of osines. However, efore we n proeed wit tis we need to onsider te se of te otuse ngled tringle : OTUS NGLS Te study of te trigonometri rtios of ny ngle is eyond our sope t present. It is suffiient for our purposes to note two fts: (1) te sine of n ute ngle is te sme s te sine of its supplement. Tt is: Tis n e quikly verified using lultor.
