why do i have to change to , is it possible work with the tan120 below? if it's not possible, then may i would like to ask if it is true that i have to change all the angles to acute?

Yes you have to change all the angles to acute. It would make sense, since you're trying to get all the angles to ...
Hello everyone A slight variation at the end: Once you get to , use the original result, re-arranged as: Grandad
