Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2ok... that makes more sense, you have been given 2 angles and 1 side

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2lets start with the easy one if angle A = 25 and angle B = 43 what is the measure of angle C..?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2ok... so the angles in a triangle add to 180 degrees so C = 180  25  43 what would you say C is..?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2great... so you have eliminated 2 answer choices... its between A and B so do you know the law of sines...?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2you need the law of sines to find a and b dw:1436219276410:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2wow... that makes it hard to answer the question so the law of sines is uses the side and angle measures to find other sides and angles the law you'll need is \[\frac{c}{\sin(C)} = \frac{a}{\sin(A)}\] have you seen that before..?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2ok... then here is a quick and dirty method to solve the problem... there is this stuff about triangles that says the longest side is opposite the largest angle the shortest side is opposite the smallest angle the middles length side is opposite the middle angle measure so the angles in order of side are Angle C = 112 side c = 17 Angle B = 43 side b = 12,5 or 7.5 Angle A = 25 side a = 12.5 or 7.5 so using the facts about sides and angles... what side matches angle A and which side matches angle A

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2think about the shortest is opposite the smallest angle

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so would the answer be B ??
