Hi - I'm finding this question a bit tricky and think I answered it wrong, can someone please verify for me? Many thanks....

In triangle EFG, find the value of f, if e = 7.3 cm, g = 8.7 cm and <E = 73.

• Math -

first find angle G
sinE/e =sinG/g
so
sinG = (8.7/7.3)sin73
sin G is >1. This triangle is impossible. Perhaps a typo?
