## moongazer 3 years ago What is ambigous case in trigonometry?

1. UnkleRhaukus

Two triangles can be made with angle $$\phi$$ and side lengths; L, a

2. moongazer

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.

3. moongazer

How do you also identify what ambigous case is that?

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

6. moongazer

how do you know if it is a two solution or one solution

7. moongazer

I think in no solution it will be undefined.

8. UnkleRhaukus

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