Properties of Triangles(involving circumscribed, ascribed...)?
The triangle ABC is right triangled at A. Ratio of the radius of the circle circumscribed to the radius of the circle escribed to the hypotenuse is √2 : (√3 + √2). Find the angles B & C and the ratio of the two perpendicular sides of the triangle.

(This involves trigonometry, doesn't it? But where? And how?....)

Hello,
what is an ascribed circle ? Did you mean inscribed ?

it appears that the ratio you have quoted is wrong.
