# Maths/Law of sines

I have a spherical triangle and I know 1 angle 31.3 degrees and all 3 sides which are 1624, 2118.4 and 1078.85 nautical miles.

In order to find the other 2 angles I know I must use the law of sines:

sin A over a = sin B over b = sin C over c

If angle A is 31.3 degrees and side a is 1078.85 nautical miles

Side b is 1624 and side c is 2118.4

I do have a scientific calculator but have no idea how to proceed

1. You must use the fact that one degree around the earth is 60 nautical miles to get distances as angles.
