Can you mix dimensionless function or angles to find length in triangles? For example, two sides are composed of a distance of $0.85+0.4=1.25$ and at the same time $0.4=\cos\theta$and the base is $1$?

If you aren't given the values of the angles A, B and C, the three equations just tell you that c = 1.
