# A triangle has two corners with angles of # (3 pi ) / 4 # and # ( pi )/ 8 #. If one side of the triangle has a length of #7 #, what is the largest possible area of the triangle?

Largest possible area = 17.3241

The remaining angle:

I am assuming that length AB (6) is opposite the smallest angle.

To find the largest possible area of the triangle, we use the formula for the area of a triangle given two sides and the angle between them, which is ( A = \frac{1}{2} \times a \times b \times \sin(C) ), where ( A ) is the area, ( a ) and ( b ) are the lengths of the two sides, and ( C ) is the angle between them.

Given the angles ( \frac{3\pi}{4} ) and ( \frac{\pi}{8} ), the third angle can be found by subtracting the sum of the given angles from ( \pi ) (180 degrees). Thus, the third angle is ( \pi - \left(\frac{3\pi}{4} + \frac{\pi}{8}\right) = \frac{\pi}{8} ).

Now, using the Law of Sines, we can find the lengths of the other two sides. Let ( x ) be the length of the side opposite the angle ( \frac{3\pi}{4} ), and ( y ) be the length of the side opposite the angle ( \frac{\pi}{8} ). We have:

[ \frac{x}{\sin\left(\frac{3\pi}{4}\right)} = \frac{7}{\sin\left(\frac{\pi}{8}\right)} ]

Solving for ( x ):

[ x = \frac{7 \times \sin\left(\frac{3\pi}{4}\right)}{\sin\left(\frac{\pi}{8}\right)} ]

Now, using the formula for the area of a triangle:

[ A = \frac{1}{2} \times x \times 7 \times \sin\left(\frac{\pi}{8}\right) ]

[ A = \frac{1}{2} \times \left(\frac{7 \times \sin\left(\frac{3\pi}{4}\right)}{\sin\left(\frac{\pi}{8}\right)}\right) \times 7 \times \sin\left(\frac{\pi}{8}\right) ]

[ A = \frac{49 \times \sin\left(\frac{3\pi}{4}\right)}{2 \times \sin\left(\frac{\pi}{8}\right)} ]

[ A \approx 15.32 ]

So, the largest possible area of the triangle is approximately 15.32 square units.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
