  1. if you know two sides and the included angle, the law of cosines will give you the other side.

    if you know two sides and the angle opposite one of them, the law of sines will other opposite angle. Or if you know the angles and one side, you can get the other sides.

    Another one for you :P, add these two vectors using trigonometry (again)... 9N[S2W] and 11N[N31W]...Again, I am confused about the angles, I am not sure what value I should use for the cosine and sine law. THANKS AGAIN!!
