This is an SSA configuration which*could*result in 0, 1 or two distinct triangles, depending on the length of the "dangling" leg BC, i.e. the side which does not touch the given angle A.

To determine which case applies, we construct a triangle where the side BC' cuts AC' at C' and make a right angle with AC'. Calculate the length BC'.

In this case angle C=90°, therefore angle B=45°. From an isosceles triangle with AB as the hypotenuse, BC'=5√2=7.071

Since BC=8 is greater than BC', there are two distinct triangles where the two possible positions of C are on each side of C'.
