Right-angled Triangles

A right-angled triangle mostly is well-determined by two magnitudes and the right angle. In the program you are asked to choose two of the following elements and then to enter their values:

If you enter the values of two out of these nine magnitudes the program computes the others.


Given : 
                     Side a = 3
               Hypotenuse c = 5
Results : 
                     Side b = 4
                Angle Alpha = 36,869898°
                 Angle Beta = 53,130102°
                 Altitude h = 2,4
       Hypotenuse segment p = 1,8
       Hypotenuse segment q = 3,2
                     Area A = 6
