1. Find B to the nearest degree in triangle ABC given A = 34 degrees, b=7.0 and a = 11.

a^2 =b^2 + c^2 -2bc*cosA => c=16.08
b^2 =a^2 + c^2 -2ac*cosB => B=54 degree

2. How do you convert from degrees to radians. Explain and provide an example with 283 degrees.

One complete circle is 360 in degree while it is 2π in radian. Therefore, degree/360 = radian/2π
=>(283/360)* 2π=6.84

3. The hypotenuse of a 30-60-90 triangle is 10. Find the ...

Solution Summary

There are several trigonometry questions involving hypotenuse and perimeter, Heron's formula, area, degrees of a triangle, and conversion between degrees and radians.
