A quadrilateral with 4 known sides and 1 known angle 2010-03-19
From samuel:

Status: Student

I have a quadrilateral with 4 known sides and 1 known angle, and I'm trying to evaluate the other angles of my quadrilateral.

By the law of cosines, I can easily find my opposite angle (using the diagonal as a basis for the equation).

However, to find the two remaining angles, I have found no other way so far than to use the other diagonal, which can be found with the equation attached (from geometry atlas).

Is there any simpler way?
