You have to know more. You have one angle, and the opposite side. Is this a right triangle?

Do you mean triangle KLM? What do you mean by saying a triangle equals 5? Do you mean that side LM has a length of 5? If so, consider the law of sines. Angle K is opposite to side LM. Angle M is opposite to side KL.

You have only provided two pieces of information about the triangle: one side l;ength and one angle measure. You need to know three values to fully define the triangle. Is angle K 90 degrees?
