    use law of cosines AC = b AB=a BC = c b^2 = a^2 +c^2 - 2ac*cos(120); b= 13.892 then use law of sines: sin(ABC)/b = sin(BAC)/c; sin(120)/13.892 = x/9; x= 0.561040853 arcsin(x) = 34.13 degrees = m BAC

    Although this is reasonably straightforward to visualize, could you attach an image? Scan or take a picture of it so we can see what the triangle looks like.
