In the above drawing, it is simple to find the angles and legs of each individual triangle using Trig. For example, the one angle is Ø = ATan(((3.0 - 2.5)/2)/2.1).
The other angle is, Ø = ATan((((3.0 - 2.6)/2)/(1.6 - 0.9)).
Using those angles, I can find the hypotenuse of either triangle. However, in order to find "X" in this drawing, it is dependant on BOTH angles, and not just one.
Usually in Trig, all I need is one angle and one side, or 2 sides.....but when something like this, which involves 2 angles....I'm stumped!!!
Does anyone know how to solve this?
Thanks a lot!
