I have a trig question related to some programming I'm doing (rotating images), but my school doesn't cover trig until next year or so. I think this should be fairly simple. Here's my diagram:

Given x, y, and z as integers representing the lengths of the sides of this triangle, is there any way to find the measure of angle a? Would it be possible if the triangle is NOT right? And how would the solution change if the triangle is right?

Thanks in advance .
