    My directions say in each triangle ABC, find the measures for <B and <c that satisfy the given conditions and then I was given that problem I posted and my work

    so that isnt saying m is less than A is equal to 62?

    it's a ambiguous case

    I don't think so I thought it meant measure angle A is 62 degrees then a is 30 and b=32 and I have to use sin to figure it out

    So angle A = 62 degress and the side length of a = 30 and the side length of b = 32?

    Thanks lol so Now I solve it by sin 62/30 = sin B/32

    sin B = 32sin62/30 and when I plugged that in I got 0.942

    but I don't think the given information yields a triangle

    alright so I am this point 30/sin62 = 32/sinb which ends up going to sinb=.942 then i did b=sin^-1(.942) = 70.4 degrees

    well then we have 2 angles 62+74 =x then 180-x = the final angle of the triangle
