calculate other angles of a right triangle

YOU USE THE PYTHAGORUS RULE WHICH IS       ASQ + BSQ  = HSQ

THAT IS BASE SQ + OTHERSIDE SQ  =  HYPOTENUSE SQ

EXAMPLE  IF SIDE A=3  SIDE B=4     THEN    3X3 + 4X4  =   9 +16 =25 SO THE HYP WOULD BE THE SQ ROOT OF 25 = 5

ANOTHER EXAMPLE   SIDE A = 8   HYP = 14.4222  FIND SIDE  B

SO    8X8 + BSQ = 208    BSQ = 208 - 64    =144  SO SIDE B IS   SQ ROOT 144 WHICH IS 12

HOPE THIS HELPS IF YOU LOG ONTO THE S ITE BELOW THERE IS MORE INFO

Pythagoras Theorem

Pythagoras. It is called "Pythagoras' Theorem" and can be written in one short equation: a2 + b2 = c2. Note: c is the longest side of the triangle; a and b are the ...

HI DO YOU MEAN OTHER ANGLES OF A RIGHT ANGLE TRIANGLE IF SO THE RIGHT ANGLE IS 90 DEG   AS  ALL THREE ANGLES IN A TRIANGLE ADD UP TO 180DEG   IF YOU SUBTRACT THE RIGHT ANGLE OF 90DEG YOU ARE LEFT WITH 90 DEG

THAT MEANS THAT THE TWO REMAINING ANGLES ALWAYS ADD UP TO 90DEG

FOR EXAMPLE  IF ONE OF THE REMAINING ANGLES WAS 30DEG THE UNKNOWN ANGLE WOULD BE  90 - 30 = 60DEG

I HOPE THIS HAS HELPED YOU IF NOT PLEASE ASK ANOTHER QUESTION

I know that much. If one side is 4 and the other is 1,how do you calculate each to add up to 90 degrees
