A contractor plans to build an artist's studio with a roof that slopes differently on the 2 sides. On one side, the roof makes an angle of 33 degrees with the horizontal. On the other side, which has a window, the roof makes an angle of 65 degrees with the horizontal. The walls of the studio are planned to be 22 feet apart. So, if i subtract those two angles from 180 i get 148...which is def obtuse. So is this the ambiguous case? Or is it a condition where I get more than one solution?
