Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Law of sine will pretty much get you the answer. Any ideas of how to use the law of sine?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The Law of Sine or the Sine rule says: \(\Large \frac{Sin(A)}{a}=\frac{Sine(B)}{b}=\frac{Sin(C)}{c}\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@Zale101 the law of sines won't work here yet. We need to know either B or C. To start off, use the law of cosines to solve for 'a'. After that, the law of sines can be used.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@Abbs__ Jim is right, you start off by using the law of cosines, to know B or C because apparently you can't go straight ahead and do the law of sines because it wont work. Your question only shows A, then b and c. We can't have Sin(A)/a because we only know A and a is not giving, same goes for B and C. There's missing parts that's why we can't use the laws of sine. Thanks again, jim Step 1: Laws of Cosine Step 2: Laws of sine

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Law of Cosines a^2 = b^2 + c^2  2*b*c*cos(A) a^2 = 14^2 + 6^2  2*14*6*cos(52) ... make the proper substitutions now isolate 'a'
