Subject: Couple of questions. From: Red Eye Date: 27 Feb 02  01:29 PM I have been given a triangle, looks equilatral, which has one angle given of 124 degrees. How do I calculate the other two? And how do I put that TM after my name? Thanks 
Subject: RE: Couple of questions. From: Gary T Date: 27 Feb 02  01:35 PM The sum of the three angles of a triangle is 180. An equilateral triangle's angles each measure 60. If one angle is greater than 90, it is an obtuse triangle. Given one angle of 124, the sum of the other two angles is 56. In order to calculate them, you will also need the measurement of one of the angles or the length of two of the sides. 
Subject: RE: Couple of questions. From: Nigel Parsons Date: 27 Feb 02  01:40 PM Of course, If you mean it looks as if two sides are equal, then the other angles are both 28 degrees. Do you honestly mean that your name is a registered trademark? 
Subject: RE: Couple of questions. From: MMario Date: 27 Feb 02  01:40 PM if one angle is 124 then it can't be an equilateral triangle  which has equal length sides and three 120 degree andgles. But since it appears to be equilateral and one angle is 124 degree I would suspect that the other angles would be 118 degrees each. and what TM?

Subject: RE: Couple of questions. From: gnu Date: 27 Feb 02  01:42 PM I cannot remember how to spell isoceles (?) and I can't find it in the dictionary. Must be what your are looking for, ie, two sides are the same length.... (180  124)/2.

Subject: RE: Couple of questions. From: Gary T Date: 27 Feb 02  01:57 PM By definition, if one angle is 124, it's not an equilateral triangle, as MMario mentioned. If you know it's an isosceles triangle, then both of the other two anlges are 28, as Nigel said. As in most areas of life, the answer is often forthcoming if the right question is asked. 
Subject: RE: Couple of questions. From: Dead Horse Date: 27 Feb 02  03:18 PM Bugger that. What does the triangle SOUND like when you play it? For a really good sound you must use old tines from an agricultural implement, or maybe the bits from a Ford model T, the open ends must be curled outwards, and enough space between open ends so you can get the beater out!!!

Subject: RE: Couple of questions. From: greg stephens Date: 27 Feb 02  03:28 PM cant you pull the beater out sideways...or is this some anticajun joke i havent grasped the significance of? 
Subject: RE: Couple of questions. From: gnu Date: 27 Feb 02  03:28 PM Thanks for answering my question, Gary T, although in a roundabout way. 
Subject: RE: Couple of questions. From: Red Eye Date: 27 Feb 02  05:03 PM Can now put in ™ and also the answer to the triangle question is that the other two angles both measure 28 degrees. Thankyou to you all. 
Subject: RE: Couple of questions. From: McGrath of Harlow Date: 27 Feb 02  06:12 PM In any equilateral trangle all the degrees have to be the same. If it was drawn on an appropriately curved surface I suppose you could in theory have an equilateral triangle with the angles being 124 degrees instead of 60. Or in a really tightly curved universe... 
Subject: RE: Couple of questions. From: GUEST Date: 27 Feb 02  06:20 PM Kevin, Is your intention to become the local 'pub bore'? If so, you're doing particularly well

Subject: RE: Couple of questions. From: gnu Date: 27 Feb 02  06:24 PM One question might be, who the heck is Kevin ?

Subject: RE: Couple of questions. From: Nigel Parsons Date: 28 Feb 02  06:59 AM Dead Horse said that for best results use old agricultural tines to make your triangle. These instruments should only be used in good weather, else you get "The Fog on The Tyne" type sounds.
