What he said!!!! Do NOT psych yourself out on this. Given 2 sides and an angle or 1 side and 2 angles and you can figure out all the other sides and angles.but most math is about memorizing formulas so ya know where to plug the numbers into....like a + b = c....or 1/2 bh....the challenge is to learn enough to pass the test and move on
I feared Calculus in college even though it was only business calculus. Don't even need to understand what it means. Put it off to the last semester. It was a breeze, all I had to do was know which formula to apply to the shape. Got 105% in that class because the prof had extra credit questions on the tests.
And no I've not ever made use of that "knowledge". The most important angle thing to know is the 3-4-5 rule to measure out a right angle when you are making stuff too big to use a framing square. Easy enough to make square corners in your fences and stuff.
