# Triangle calculator

The calculator solves the triangle specified by three of its properties. Each triangle has six main characteristics: three sides a, b, c, and three angles (α, β, γ). The classic trigonometry problem is to specify three of these six characteristics and find the other three. Of course, our calculator solves triangles from combinations of main and derived properties such as area, perimeter, heights, medians, etc.
Usually by the length of three sides (SSS), side-angle-side, or angle-side-angle.

## How does this calculator solve a triangle?

The calculation of the general triangle has two phases:**The expert phase**is different for different tasks. The calculator tries to calculate the sizes of three sides of the triangle from the entered data. He gradually applies the knowledge base to the entered data, which is represented in particular by the relationships between individual triangle parameters. These are successively applied and combined, and the triangle parameters calculate. Calculator iterates until the triangle has calculated all three sides.

For example, the appropriate height is calculated from the given area of the triangle and the corresponding side. From the known height and angle, the adjacent side, etc., can be calculated. Calculator use knowledge, e.g., formulas and relations like the Pythagorean theorem, Sine theorem, Cosine theorem, and Heron's formula.-
**The second stage**is the calculation of the properties of the triangle from the available lengths of its three sides.

## Examples of how to enter a triangle:
