How to solve this triangle
C = 114, b = 26, c =21 degrees
When I use Law of Sine
\( \frac{\sin114}{22} = \frac{\sin B}{26} \) I get 1.0796 Am I doing this right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1That makes more sense because you put degrees after the little c and that confused it all.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1That doesn't make a triangle though...?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes the numbers are right. Also, my book has Angles as capital and sides as lower case.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So to make sure, you have Angle C = 114 degrees Side c = 22 units Side b = 26 units ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0All I did is bump the numders up 1, but my original problem I still get sine being over 1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Angle C is the largest angle, so it has to have the largest side length, which is not the case. So it can not form a triangle.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the origninally problem is C=113 degres b =25 and c = 21 but sine is still over 1

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1That still doesn't form a triangle, however.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So I take it there is no triangle.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That must be the solution. There is no triangle.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1That should be the answer as no triangle can be formed with given measurements.
