    I already know the sine law. and written on my notebook is: 1.) one solution case 2.) two solution case 3.) no solution case they have a given What is the use of ambigous case? as I remember, my teacher said that it is used to determine what triangle will be formed, obtuse, or acute.

    @UnkleRhaukus Is that the two solution case? does it mean you can have two different triangles based on the given?

    I think in no solution it will be undefined.

    if i have remembered the right ambiguous case about triangles ambiguous means there is more than one solution
