Answer to Question #14838 in Trigonometry for Nathan
a + b + c = 985;
a = c* cos(37.6);
b = c* sin(37.6);
Let's plug in last two into first to solve for c:
c*cos(37.6) + c*sin(37.6) + c = 985 ==>
0.79c + 0.61c + c = 985 ==>
2.4c = 985 ==>
c = 410
now plug c into those initial equations for a and b to solve for a and b:
a = 326, b = 250: area = 1/2 * a*b = 0.5*326*250 = 40.750 square yards.
