    ABC is a right triangle where the right angle is at vertexC.the acute angles at vertices A and B are donoted by alpha and beta respectively.
    Solve the following right triangle
    a) alpha = 60,c=2.7
    Please dram the diagram showing me where are ABC located and where are alpha and beta angles located?

    Here is what your triangle looks like according to your description.

    Angle B=60 deg and angle A=30 deg.

    Use sine and cosie to find the side lengths a and b.

    a=2.7sin(30)

    b=2.7cos(30)

    or

    a=2.7cos(60)

    b=2.7sin(60)

    Follow?.
