# Thread: Length of Sides of a Right Triangle

1. ## Length of Sides of a Right Triangle

How do I find the lengths of the sides of a right triangle with two angle measures and one length measure? And one angle measure and two length measures?

For example, triangle ABC. A = 90*. C = 32*. Distance between A and B is 12. If an equation is provided, it would be greatly appreciated.

It's been a long time since I've done anything like this.

Use the trigonometric ratios.
In triangle ABC
sinC = AB/BC. Find BC
tanC = AB/AC. Find AC.
Similarly solve the other problem.
