How to construct a triangle given two side lengths and the angle in between
The theory behind how it works
Constructing a Triangle given two side length and the angle in between
- Construct one of the given line lengths first. (Line AB)
- Next get your protractor and measure the given angle in the question from point A and extend it on.
- Get your compass and measure the second side length and place it on point A, swing the arc until it intersects the angle drawn in step 2. This will create point C. Join point C to B, creating the required triangle.
