### Cosine rule at a glance

The cosine rule is the relationship between one angle within a triangle and its three sides. The cosine rule states that a²=b²+c²-2bc cos(A) where a, b and c are the lengths of the sides of the triangle and A is the angle opposite side a.

The cosine rule can be used to work out missing side lengths and missing angles in non right-angled triangles.

To find the missing information, we put the values we know into the cosine rule and then solve the equation to find the missing length. When working out a missing angle we will need to use the inverse trigonometric function cos-1.

Be sure not to round your answers too early in your calculation when using the cosine rule. Also pay close attention to the specified number of decimal places or significant figures in your answer.

Looking forward, students can then progress to additional geometry worksheets, for example a 3D shapes worksheet or .

For more teaching and learning support on Geometry our GCSE maths lessons provide step by step support for all GCSE maths concepts.

## Do you have GCSE students who need additional support?

There will be students in your class who require individual attention to help them achieve their target GCSE maths grade. In a class of 30, it’s not always easy to provide.
