Given two sides A, B and angle C. Find the third side of the triangle using law of cosines.
Input : a = 5, b = 8, c = 49 Output : 6.04339
In particular, the Law of Cosines can be used to find the length of the third side of a triangle when you know the length of two sides and the angle in between. See here to learn to how to find the value of cos.
Let us assume a, b, c are the sides of triangle where c is the side across from angle C. Then,
c^2 = a^2 + b^2 - 2*a*b*cos(c) OR c = sqrt(a^2 + b^2 - 2*a*b*cos(c))
