In the triangle ABC, the sides AB and BC have lengths 7cm and 8cm respectively, and angle B is obtuse. the area of the triangle is 14 root 3 cm^2. Find
a.The size of angle B
b. The length of AC

  • trigonometry -

    formula for area of triangle
    = (1/2)ab sinØ, where Ø is the contained angle of sides a and b

    (1/2)(7)(8) sinØ = 14√3
    sin Ø = 28√3/56 = √3/2
    Ø = 60°
