Hi,

I'm looking to create a formula that will solve for side C of a

triangle. There's a catch though, so it's not your everyday formula.

Attached is a picture of what the formula needs to solve and what variables will exist.

What makes this tricky is the 65' and 25'

angle on one side of the 2'x4'. I've tried making the cuts based off the normal triangle formula but the boards end up short and not meeting flush at he peak.

The blue dotted line is what I'm trying to solve and/or, what the true length of the board should be BEFORE the cuts are made.

Please help! AND THANK YOU!!
