Right triangle calculator

Please enter two properties of the right triangle

Use symbols: a, b, c, A, B, h, T, p, r, R


The right triangle calculators compute angles, sides (adjacent, opposite, hypotenuse), and area of any right-angled triangle and use it in the real world. Two independent properties entirely determine any right-angled triangle. The calculator provides a step-by-step explanation for each calculation.

A right triangle is a kind of triangle that has one angle that measures C=90°. In a Right triangle, the side c that is opposite the C=90° angle and is the longest side of the triangle and is called the hypotenuse. The symbols a and b are the lengths of the shorter sides, also called legs or arms. Symbols for angles are A (or α alpha) and B (or β beta). Symbol h refers to the altitude (height) of the triangle, which is the length of the perpendicular line segment drawn from the vertex of the triangle to the hypotenuse.
