a theory for all triangles is that they will equal 180 degrees with all 3 angles
so im guess its angles will be
recheck math...35+45 is only 80 so his original angles adhere to the theory ut's all 180.
I assume that you want the angles from predetermined/built lengths. So, using cos then taking the bottom right angle first, cos(x) = adjacent/hypotenuse -> cos(x) = 6.6/12 -> using inverse cosine, the bottom angle should be 56.63 degrees.
Then, taking the top left angle, using cos(x) = adj/hypotenuse -> cos(x) = 10/12 -> inverse cosine, the top angle is 33,56 degrees,
33.56+56.53 = 90.09, so the angles match with the lengths

Reason: effed my math up. oops.
Mathematically that would work out but practically I think you would want 90+45+45 so you have a better down ramp also if you increase your drop angle the length on the bottom must increase hopefully that made sense and for your third side the Pythagorean theorem A^2+b^2=c^2 should help
Go ahead click it You know you want to
