    ok \[\cos B=\dfrac{a^2+c^2-b^2}{2ac} \]

    sin <b/b=sin<a=a sin<(180-(a+b))/c and solve for C

    if u remember that you need atleast 3 pieces of information to solve a triangle and that if the angle given is the angle of the opposite side then you can always use sin law if they give u like side a and b but give you angle C then you have to use cos law if its not a right angle triangle
