Oblique Triangles. Law of Sines. Case: ASA or AAS a sin A. = b. sinB. = c. sinC. Case: SSA sin A a. = sinB b. = sinC c. Law of Cosines. Case: SAS a2 = b2 + c2 −. In this lesson, you'll learn three different ways to find the area of an oblique triangle, which can come in handy if you think your piece of pie. The method that we will use to determine the area of an oblique triangle requires knowing the measurement of two sides of the triangle and the included angle.

You could also take half the length of the base and multiply it by the height. Just choose one formula to remember, whichever is easiest for you. It is also an oblique triangle because none of the three angles of the triangle are right angles. Area of Oblique Area of oblique triangles Notice that the base is in green. P and Q are two inaccessible points. How long is PQ?

Find the angles and the other diagonal.

## Oblique Triangles

Find the lengths of the sides and the other diagonal. The diagonals of a parallelogram are The sides of a quadrilateral in order are Find the other three angles. A and B are area of oblique triangles points on opposite sides of a body of water, and soundings are to be taken in the line AB at points one quarter, one half, and three quarters of the distance from A to B.

What angles must be turned off from CA at C in order to line up the boat from which the soundings are area of oblique triangles at the proper points on AB? Q is a point on the opposite side of the stream.

To find the distance between two inaccessible points P and Q, a line AB area of oblique triangles Find area of oblique triangles length of PQ. You can use the law of sines to determine either of the lengths AB or BC.

The question is to find the distance from C to AB. Now substitute these values in the given formula to find the area if you have the lengths of two sides of a triangle and the value of the included angle in between them.
