Cosine Rule and Sine Rule

In any ∆, we have six quantities namely the three angles and the three sides. Using the following rules, we can find any of the three quantities if we are provided with the remaining three quantities.

Sine Rule Description: 7069.png
Sine and Cosine formulae are particularly more im­portant in cases where we have one side and two angles out of the three angles of the triangle and we have to find out the value of all the sides and angles.

Two important points
  • The side opposite to the largest angle will be the largest.
  • The side opposite to the smallest angle will be the smallest.
In the figure given below, AD = CD = BC. What is the value of ∠CDB?
Description: P-325-1.tif
x + y = 180 – 96 = 84° (i)
In ∆CDB, 4x + y = 180 (ii)
Solving (i) and (ii), x = 32°
So, 2x = 64°
