Objective :  Solve oblique triangle problems.
Part 1: No calculatorsallowed(1–11) Problems 1–6 refer to ∆ XYZ. 1. Sketch ∆ XYZ. Label the angles and the corresponding sides. 6. Write Hero’s formula for ∆ XYZ.

Form A

Problems 7–9 refer to ∆ ABC. 7. Sketch ∆ ABC if a = 3, b = 5, and c = 7.

2. Write the law of cosines for finding side x in ∆ XYZ.

8. Based on the side lengths from Problem 7, which angle is the largest: A, B, or C? What property from geometry allows you to tell this quickly? 3. Write the law of sines for ∆ XYZ.

9. Write the law of cosines for ∆ ABC that involves the largest angle. Then perform a calculation that will tell whether the largest angle is acute or obtuse.

4. Write the area formula for ∆ XYZ that involves angle X. Problems 10 and 11 refer to ∆ DEF. 10. Side d = 4 and side e = 6. If sin F = 0.2, find the area of the triangle.

5. Write a formula for the semiperimeter, s, of ∆ XYZ.

11. Is angle F acute or obtuse? How do you know?
