Page 62 - a 2 + c 2 — 2 ac cos B, The three formulas have precisely the same form, and the law may be stated as follows : The square of any side of a triangle is equal to the sum of the squares of the other two sides., diminished by
Page 61 - The sides of a triangle are proportional to the sines of the opposite angles. If we regard these three equations as proportions, and take them by alternation, it will be evident that they may be written in the symmetrical form,
