will give medal to best answer!
The given measurements may or may not determine a triangle. If not, then state that no triangle is formed. If a triangle is formed, then use the Law of Sines to solve the triangle, if it is possible, or state that the Law of Sines cannot be used.
C = 38°, a = 19, c = 10

Did you try simply using Law of Sines to figure it out?

i got sin A = 67 but that isnt in my answer choices No triangle is formed. A = 58.6°, B = 83.4°, b ≈ 15.6 A = 83.4°, B = 58.6°, b ≈ 15.6 The triangle cannot be solved with the Law of Sines.

I don't understand how you got that. Please show me the steps you took to get A = 67

i used c/ sin c = a/ sin a 10/sin 37 = 19/sin a and then i divided 19 sin 38 over sin 10 and i got 67.36

where did you get the 37 from?

I meant 38, i used 38 in my claculations and still got 67

Are you in degree mode or radian mode?

i dont know i just typed it in and got 67, cant you check it?

You must make sure you're in degree mode. That's very important.

But either way it goes, you're not doing it correctly.

\[\sin A = \frac{19\sin(38^{\circ})}{10} \\\sin A = \]

Compute the right hand side again and let me know what you get. Make sure you're in degree mode.

Hero Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
Okay now \[\sin A = 1.169756803\] So how do we find A?
 one year ago

meg1334 Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
a is 19, sin A is 1.16, what do you mean find A?

Hero Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
A is an angle. Find it

Hero Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
A is an Angle like theta

I'm not talking about a = 19. That's a side length

Hero Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
\[\sin (A^{\circ}) = 1.169756803\] I'm talking about Angle A. Find that.

Hero Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
You take the inverse sine of both sides to get: \[\sin^{1}(A^{\circ}) = \sin^{1}({1.169756803}) \\A^{\circ} = \sin^{1}({1.169756803}) \]
 one year ago

Hero Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
So compute \[\sin^{1}({1.169756803})\]

Let me know what you get.

it says error

That's what it should say because no such angle exists.
 one year ago

Hero Group TitleBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
And if the angle doesn't exist, then the triangle can't possibly exist.

\[1< \sin(\theta) < 1\] means that the value of sine can only be between  or + one. So there's no such thing as \(\sin(\theta) = 1.17\)
