## Hackerrank Class 2 - Find the Torsional Angle Solution

Beeze Aal

You are given four points  and  in a 3-dimensional Cartesian coordinate system. You are required to print the angle between the plane made by the points  and  in degrees(not radians). Let the angle be .

where  x  and  x .

Here,  means the dot product of  and , and  x  means the cross product of vectors  and . Also, .

Input Format

One line of input containing the space separated floating number values of the  and  coordinates of a point.

Output Format

Output the angle correct up to two decimal places.

Sample Input

0 4 5
1 7 6
0 5 9
1 7 2


Sample Output

8.19

Approach 1.

Y = cross(minus(p[2], p[1]), minus(p[3], p[2]))
print("%.2f" % (acos(dot(X, Y) / length(X) / length(Y)) / pi * 180))

Approach 2.

Y = cross(minus(points[1], points[2]), minus(points[2], points[3]))
cosphi = dot(X, Y) / (length(X) * length(Y))

Approach 3.
