# Find Angles of a Triangle given side lengths

The question is: The sides of a triangle are $$1, \sqrt{6}, \text{and } 1+\sqrt{3}$$

Find all the angles of the triangle.

I've tried using the Law of Cosines in reverse on the triangles to try and find the angles, but I just get a huge mess. Trying to calculate the angle between 1 and $$\sqrt{6}$$ I just get $$\arccos{(\frac{1}{2}+\frac{\sqrt{2}}{2}-\frac{\sqrt{6}}{4})}$$ which clearly can't be right because that would just be a huge mess. Is there an easier way to do this I'm missing?

The anlges of the triangle are 20 degrees, 60 degrees, and 100 degrees.

That's obviously wrong

Obtuse scalene triangle.

Sides: a = 1   b = 2.449   c = 2.732

Area: T = 1.219
Perimeter: p = 6.182
Semiperimeter: s = 3.091

Use the Law of Cosines to get:

Angle ∠ A =21.369° = 21°22'10″ = 0.373 rad
Angle ∠ B =63.195° = 63°11'40″ = 1.103 rad
Angle ∠ C =95.436° = 95°26'10″ = 1.666 rad
