### Trigonometry

If side P = 8cm, Q = 7cm and side R = 5cm. So the area of the triangle is?

### Re: Trigonometry

a=8 ; b=7 ; c=5 ; $$S_{ABC }$$=?

(cos T) $$a^{2}$$=$$b^{2}$$+$$c^{2}$$-2bc.cos$$\alpha$$

cos$$\alpha$$=$$\frac{b^{2}+c^{2}-a^{2}}{2bc}$$

cos$$\alpha$$=$$\frac{49+25-64}{2.7.5}$$

cos$$\alpha$$=$$\frac{1}{7}$$ $$\Leftrightarrow$$ sin$$\alpha$$=$$\sqrt{\frac{48}{49}}$$

sin$$\alpha$$=$$\frac{4\sqrt{3}}{7}$$

$$S_{ABC }$$=$$\frac{bc.sin\alpha}{2}$$=$$\frac{7.5.4\sqrt{3}}{2.7}$$

$$S_{ABC }$$=10$$\sqrt{3}$$
