The Sine Rule is used to solve any problems involving
triangles when at least either of the following is
a) two angles and a side
b) two sides and an angle opposite a given side
In Triangle ABC, we use the convention that
a is the side opposite angle A
b is the side opposite angle B
c b
The sine rules enables us to calculate sides and angles
In the some triangles where there is not a right angle.…read more

Example 2 (Given two sides and an included angle)
Solve triangle ABC in which A = 55°, b = 2.4cm and
<> c = 2.9cm
By cosine rule,
a2 = 2.42 + 2.92 - 2 x 2.9 x 2.4 cos 55°
= 6.1858
a = 2.49cm…read more
