Given are two points on a line with coordinates. How do we calculate the third forming a perfect 60 degree triangle? So we have X,Y, but need Z...
X: 0,0 ( 0,0 i.e. horizontal, vertical )
Y: 50, 0
Z: 25, ??
How to calculate the missing horizontal coordinate for Z? Forming a perfect 60 degree triangle?
EDIT: I'm trying to figure out a formula that by providing only 50 as the length of one side of the triangle all the point coordinates can be figured out. The first 2 and half of them are easy (0,0 50, 0, ??, 25)... but how to calculate the number at '??' is what I'm trying to figure out.
EDIT2 (@Dennis): It would probably help if I explained that my coordinates are not of the actual point but a 100px wide circle that the point is in the middle of. I made a small video to show you guys exactly what I'm doing and will post is just as soon as it's done uploading.
EDIT3: Here is a video showing exactly what I mean and why I came up with the question in the first place: http://archebian.org/videos/math/triangle-question.mp4
