    ^_^ You're actually doing great :) Now, 17 cancels out here: \[\frac{ 14 \sin 80 }{ 17 }=\frac{ \cancel{17} \sin Z }{ \cancel{17} }\]

    and we get... \[\Large \sin Z = \frac{14\sin 80^o}{17}\]

    Ahh... I see. Because what you got was the SINE of the angle Z :) You have to run it through \(\large \sin^{-1}\) to get the angle Z itself ^_^ \[\Large Z = \sin^{-1}\left(\frac{14\sin 80^o}{17}\right)\]
