    well there must be some picture or something that indicates whether c is touching angle A or not, otherwise all we have is...

    oh I bet you are supposed to assume angle A is opposite side a, which makes this doable with the law of sines I think

    . Find the bearing of the flight from C to A. a plane flies 500 km with a bearing of N 44 degrees west from B to C. the plane then flies 720 km from c to a. find thhe bearing of the flight from c to a? can you do this one too

    first get all three angles of the triangle\[\frac a{\sin A}=\frac c{\sin C}\]solve for C then you know that B=180-A-C, so you will have all 3 angles, which will allow you to find the third side b\[\frac a{\sin A}=\frac b{\sin B}=\frac c{\sin C}\]
