Textbook Problem

In Exercises 5 and 6, state the form of the Law of Cosines used to solve the problem. Using the values provided, give the answer in a form such as a 2 = b 2 + c 2 − 2 a b   cos α . See the figure for Exercises 1 to 8.a) Find c if it is known that a = 5.2 ,   b = 7.9  and  γ = 83 ∘ . b) Find α if it is known that a = 6 ,   b = 9 ,  and  c = 10 . Exercises 1-8

To determine

a.

To Find:

The side of c by using Law of Cosines.

Explanation

Formula:

The Law of Cosines

a2=b2+c22bccosα

b2=a2+c22accosβ

c2=a2+b22abcosγ

Where α, β, and γ is the acute angle of the triangle, and a, b, and c is the sides of the triangle.

Calculation:

Given,

In triangle ABC,

a=5.2

b=7

To determine

b.

To find:

The angle of α by using the Law of Cosines.
