relation between sides
how does one figure out the relation between sides- knowing only the angles. For example if one knew all the angles of a triangle how would one figure out that side A is 2X side b which is 1/2 the hypotonuse?

Sorry. but your post makes absolutely no sense whatsoever. It may be a translation problem.
Please post the exact wording of the problem in as good English as possible.
Do not try to explain what it means.

How do I calculate the relation between side lengths if I have all the angles? For example if angle a =32 degrees b= 90 and c =58, how do i find out what the measure of AB is in terms of AC ex. AB is X times the measure of AC. I do not know if I can be any clearer.
