30. Construct a Triangle ABC Given the Length of AB, the Angle at C and the Difference of the Other Two Sides
This Demonstration shows how to construct a triangle given the length of side , the opposite angle at and the difference of the lengths of the other two sides .[more]
1. Draw the segment of length .
2. Draw the circle with center so that .
3. Draw the circle with center and radius . Let the circles and meet at .
4. Let the point be the intersection of the ray and the perpendicular bisector of .
5. Then is the required triangle.
since it is an arc corresponding to the central angle . Since is an isosceles triangle with apex , and .
The problem was posed in [1, section IX, problem 2, solution pp. 291–292] and in [2, problem 2, p. 143].
