the original problem was: Solve: sin(3x)-sin(x)=cos(2x) so far i've gooten to: sin(x)(2sin(x)cos(x)-1)=cos^2(x)-sin^2(x) Where would I go from here?

Consider a non-right triangle. a=39 b=25 c = 24.(a,b,c are the sides) Find A,B,C. (these are the degrees of the triangle) I know theres an equation: b^2= a ^2 + c^2 - 2accos(B) and sinA/a = sinB/b = sinC/c but when i do the problem i get A= 74.55 B = 38.16 C = 36.68 but that ...
