If you have a triangle like the first one, and want to discover the value of the angle c, you have an ambiguous case. Because you don't defined the value of b and the angle a is < 90º. So, you have two possibilities: that c is <90º too or c > 90º. That's a ambigous case: when you have 2 sides and only an angle, opposite to one of that sides.
