Solving the properties of triangles with unknown side lengths, angles, or both, are a crucial part of geometry. These problems are found to be important steps in the solution of much larger and more complex problems as well.
This calc finds the triangle properties for a particular set of knowns and unknowns. For triangles with other sets of unknowns, other calcs are available.
