The Law of Cosines
This video introduces the law of cosines and solve triangles using the law of cosines.

The requirements for solving oblique triangles using the Law of Cosines are
SAS: Two sides and an included angle are known
SSS: Three sides are known.





Law of Cosines, Example 1
This video gives the formula for the Law of Cosines and use it to find the missing side length of a triangle.


Law of Cosines, Example 2
This video gives the formula for the Law of Cosines and use it to find the missing side length of a triangle.
