# 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 any combinations of main and derived properties such as area, perimeter, heights, medians, etc.
Usually by the length of three sides (SSS) or side-angle-side or angle-side-angle.

## How does this triangle calculator solve a triangle?

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

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