trigonometry

posted by .

using the law of sines, solve the rest of the triangle:
side C=14
side B=4
angle c=145 degrees

i got
angle b= 9.4
angle a=25.6
side A=10.4
but i didn't know if it was correct

  • trigonometry -

    sin B/b = sin C/c
    sin B = (4/14) sin 145
    sin B = .1639
    B = 9.42

    A = 180 - B - C = 180 - 9.42 - 145 = 25.58
    so you have the right idea
    Angles are usually upper case, sides lower case.
