So here is the question: Side "A" is 6 inches long, Hypotnuese is 29.5 inches long, Side B is 29 inches long. What the hell is my angle?
Attachment 23958
TIA!

With side "a" at 6" long and the hypotenuse at 29.5 inches long, angle "A" is 11.735°
Right Scalene Triangle
Side a = 6
Side b = 28.88339
Side c = 29.5
Angle ∠A = 11.735° = 11°44'7" = 0.20482 rad
Angle ∠B = 78.265° = 78°15'53" = 1.36598 rad
Angle ∠C = 90° = 1.5708 rad = π/2
With side "a" at 6" long and side "b" at 29" long, angle "A" is 11.689°
Right Scalene Triangle
Side a = 6
Side b = 29
Side c = 29.61419
Angle ∠A = 11.689° = 11°41'22" = 0.20402 rad
Angle ∠B = 78.311° = 78°18'38" = 1.36678 rad
Angle ∠C = 90° = 1.5708 rad = π/2

I used this on line calculator to copy the info for pasting

I also used my machinist calculator and came up with the same values.

Now if I was making this part for you, you would have gotten a phone call or an email asking which values to use.
