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?

    Sorry c = 22

    Note, C = 114 degrees and b and c are sides.

    That makes more sense because you put degrees after the little c and that confused it all.

    That doesn't make a triangle though...?

    Are you sure that the numbers you have provided are correct?

    usual notation is capital letters are side lengths and small / lower case letters are angles...

    Yes the numbers are right. Also, my book has Angles as capital and sides as lower case.

    So to make sure, you have Angle C = 114 degrees Side c = 22 units Side b = 26 units ?

    All I did is bump the numders up 1, but my original problem I still get sine being over 1

    Angle 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.

    AbdullahM that is correct

    the origninally problem is C=113 degres b =25 and c = 21 but sine is still over 1

    That still doesn't form a triangle, however.

    So I take it there is no triangle.

    That must be the solution. There is no triangle.

    That is what I get.

    That should be the answer as no triangle can be formed with given measurements.
