Let the angle between the diagonal and the shorter side be x.
The other angle will be 90-x degrees.
Another problem I have is about a rectangles and adjacent sides. The answer is 53.01degrees and 36.99degrees. Here is the problem:
Two adjacent sides of a rectangle are 14.8cm and 11.9 cm. Find the angles which a diagonal of the rectangle makes with the sides.
Thank You For the Help!
Every right triangle has a 90 degree angle in it. The angles in any triangle add up to be 180 degrees. Therefore, in a right triangle with angles a,b, and c, where c is the right angle (90degrees), we have a+b+90=180. If we subract 90 from both sides we have a+b=90. if we had one of these angles (a or b) we could solve for the other one.
