For the first one, they give me the length of the hypotenuse (45) and that theta = 35. How can I go about finding the missing info?

if it is a right triangle use a^2+b^2=c^2 to find the other side

take 35+90-180 to find the other angle

ONLY IF A RIGHT TRIANGLE

However, this next one gives me the length of one leg (359) and the adjacent theta of 83. How exactly can I solve this?
