    law of sines is a/sinA=b/sinB

    Sine rule says: SinA/a = SinB/b = SinC/c

    SinA/a = Sin(39.5)/145.67 SinA = a*something

    Because they mean the same thing. A/B = C/D => B/A = D/C

    You can find angle A by simply subtracting angles B and C from 180.

    Then, use this: SinA/a = Sin(39.5)/145.67 SinA = a*something SinA/something = a To find a.

    That "something" in my expression is 0.00436. Divide Sin66.8 by that "something" value. Then, you get the value of a.

    Check your calculator first. I'm guessing you're getting different answers because your calculator is not in degree mode. That's why it's treating your angles differently.

    Angles are almost close to each other. So, side lengths have to be close to each other too.

    @dessyk The following variations of Law of Sines are the same: \[\frac{a}{\sin(A)} = \frac{b}{\sin(B)}=\frac{c}{\sin(C)}\] and \[\frac{\sin(A)}{a}=\frac{\sin(B)}{b}=\frac{\sin(C)}{c}\]

    Sin(B) = 0.665 => B = inverse sine (0.665). On the calculator, you have to first press 0.665. Then, inv button, then the sin button.
