Is there any equation or method that can be used in place of a trigonomic function when side values of a triangle are known only as varriables? For example: triangle abc where c is the center of a circle and AC and BC are radiui who's value = x, and AB = x-2y. So far as I know, the area of this sector (ACB) can be found in terms of x and y but must contain a trigonomic function of x and y as well. ( such as (cos-1( x..y/x..y))(pie.r^2) . Is there any way to know the area of this sector simply in values of x and y without a trigonomic function?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});
