2 Introduction

3 Explanation Law of Cosine— a 2 =b 2 +c 2 -2bcCosA b 2 =a 2 +c 2 -2acCosB c 2 =a 2 +b 2 -2abCosC

4 Explanation First you need to identify what you have You need to have three sides (SSS) OR two sides and an angle in between them (SAS) Put the information that you have and put it into the correct formula Solve for the missing side or angle

5 Example #1- Finding a side a² = b² + c² −2(a)(b)cos(A°) a² = 20² + 13² −2(20)(13)cos(66°) a² = −520cos(66°) a² = 569 −211 a² = 358 a = 358 1/2 a = 18.9

6 Example #2-Finding a side a² = b² + c² −2(b)(c)cos(A°) a² = 52² + 16² −2(52)(16)cos(115°) a² = 2, − 1,664cos(115°) a² = 2,960− 1,664(-.423) a² = 2, a² = 3663 a=3663 1/2 a=60.5

7 Example #3 Finding an angle a² = b² + c² −2(a)(b)cos(A°) 14² = 20 ² + 12² −2(12)(20)cos(A°) 14²- 20 ² - 12² = (12)(20)cos(A°) -348=-480cos(A°) 0.675=cos(A°) cos -1 (0.25) Cos(A°)=47.5°

8 Example #4- Finding an angle a² = b² + c² −2(a)(b)cos(A°) 25² = 32² + 37² −2(32)(37)cos(A°) 625 = 2393 − 2,368 cos(A°) -1760=-2,368cos(A°) =cos(A°) cos -1 (0.7432) Cos(A°)=42°

9 Checking The longest side has the largest angle and the smallest side has the smallest angle This won’t give you the exact answer but it will help see if you have the right idea

10 Activity cosines-flash-cards/ cosines-flash-cards/ Who ever can get the most right wins
