Examples, solutions, videos, and worksheets to help grade 7 students learn how to find the area of a triangle using sine formula.
You can find the area of a triangle using the sine of one of its angles and the lengths of the two sides adjacent to that angle. The formula for finding the area of a triangle using the sine of an angle is:
A = (1/2) × a × b × sin(C)
Here’s a step-by-step guide to using this formula:
Measure the lengths of the two sides, a and b, that are adjacent to the angle for which you want to find the area. Also, measure the value of that angle, C, in degrees.
Convert the angle from degrees to radians if it’s given in degrees. Most calculators and trigonometric functions work with radians. The formula works with angles in radians.
Use the formula A = (1/2) * a * b * sin(C) to calculate the area of the triangle.
For example, if you have a triangle with sides a = 6 units and b = 8 units and the angle C between these sides is 30 degrees, you can calculate the area as follows:
Use the formula A = (1/2) * 6 * 8 * sin(30):
A = 12 square units.
So, the area of the triangle is 12 square units.
