# Two corners of a triangle have angles of #(7 pi ) / 12 # and # (3 pi ) / 8 #. If one side of the triangle has a length of #6 #, what is the longest possible perimeter of the triangle?

Longest possible perimeter P = 92.8622

To get the longest perimeter, we should consider the side corresponding to the angle that is the smallest.

To find the longest possible perimeter of the triangle, we can use the law of sines.

The law of sines states: (\frac{a}{\sin(A)} = \frac{b}{\sin(B)} = \frac{c}{\sin(C)}), where (a), (b), and (c) are the lengths of the sides opposite angles (A), (B), and (C), respectively.

Given that one side has a length of (6) and the angles are (\frac{7\pi}{12}) and (\frac{3\pi}{8}), we can find the lengths of the other two sides using the law of sines.

Let's denote the unknown sides as (b) and (c), and the corresponding angles as (B) and (C), respectively.

Then, we have:

(\frac{6}{\sin(\frac{7\pi}{12})} = \frac{b}{\sin(\frac{3\pi}{8})})

Solving for (b), we get: (b = 6 \times \frac{\sin(\frac{3\pi}{8})}{\sin(\frac{7\pi}{12})})

Similarly, we can find (c) using the law of sines:

(\frac{6}{\sin(\frac{7\pi}{12})} = \frac{c}{\sin(\pi - \frac{7\pi}{12} - \frac{3\pi}{8})})

Solving for (c), we get: (c = 6 \times \frac{\sin(\pi - \frac{7\pi}{12} - \frac{3\pi}{8})}{\sin(\frac{7\pi}{12})})

Once we have the lengths of all three sides, we can calculate the perimeter of the triangle and determine the longest possible perimeter.

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.
