Huh.. that was long..

First thing I thought about this equation was the law of cosines. We'll use it later as expected.

Let's start of with reducing this.

As ,

Law of sines tell us that

From here we get and .

By using them,

It's simple enough now. Time to find by the law of cosines..

By the law,

We got now. By using it,
