Law of Sines
The Law of Sines are very useful for solving triangles.
|If two sides and the angle opposite one of them are specified, then the angle opposite the other can be calculated. The third angle is then determined by the fact that the sum of the interior angles of a triangle must equal to _____ degrees.||180|
|The Law of Sines establishes a relationship between the angles and the side lengths of ΔABC:||a/sin(A) = b/sin(B) = c/sin(C).|
|If two sides and the angle not included between them are given:||SSA (Side, Side, Angle)|
|If two angles and the side between them are given:||ASA (Angle, Side, Angle)|
|Two angles and one side that is not included in the angles:||SAA (Side, Angle, Angle)|
