SSA with Numbers (part 1)
- Roger Gemberling
How would you determine the length of x for either triangle?
When solving for x for the triangle on the left, how many answers do you expect? Explain your answer.
How would you determine the measure of angle E?
How would you determine the measure of angle J?
When solving for the measure of angle E (or J), how many answers do you expect? Explain your answer.
Which case did you get only 1 triangle for each of the 5 examples?
How many triangles are possible for each example in Case 3?
We began with a special SSA case involving a right triangle. These triangles were called Hypotenuse-Leg triangles. Should Hypotenuse-Leg triangles be considered a special SsA situation?
