I know the length of all 4 sides of a trapezium

I know that one of the angles is 90 degrees.

None of the sides are parallel to the others.

How can I determine the remaining 3 angels?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Can you tell me which lengths make up the right angle?

so are you using the North American or the British definition?

- (British English) (North American English trapezoid) a flat shape with four straight sides, one pair of opposite sides being parallel and the other pair not parallel
- (North American English) (British English trapezoid) a flat shape with four straight sides, none of which are parallel

For the convex case, draw the hypotenuse of the two sides that have the right angle. This gives you a right triangle and you can find those angles easily. Here is a link that shows you how to do that:

That hypotenuse line is a diagonal of your trapezium and it's formed two triangles one being the right triangle that you just worked on. Now you know the length of the hypotenuse using Pythagorean theorem. Now you are left with another triangle where you know the lengths of the three sides where one of them is the hypotenuse that you just calculated.

You can use the law of cosines to compute the three angles of the triangle. Here is a link that explains a lot of cosines:
