We use capital letters for angles (vertexes) and small letters for sides corresponding. Opposite side of A is a. Opposite side of B is b. Opposite side of C is c. A B C a b c

3 Cases to use the law of sines: Case 1: (AAS or ASA) two angles and one side are known. If you are given two angles and one side (ASA or AAS), the Law of Sines will nicely provide you with ONE solution for a missing side. Case 2: (SSA) two sides and an angle opposite one of them are known. Unfortunately, the Law of Sines has a problem dealing with SSA. If you are given two sides and one angle (where you must find an angle), the Law of Sines could possibly provide you with one or more solutions, or even no solution.

8 Case 2: (SSA) two sides and an angle opposite one of them are known. Unfortunately, the Law of Sines has a problem dealing with SSA. If you are given two sides and one angle (where you must find an angle), the Law of Sines could possibly provide you with one or more solutions, or even no solution. In Geometry, we found that we could prove two triangles congruent using : SAS - Side, Angle, Side ASA - Angle, Side, Angle AAS - Angle, Angle, Side SSS - Side, Side, Side HL - Hypotenuse Leg for Right Triangles. We also discovered that SSA did not work to prove triangles congruent. We politely called it the Donkey Theorem ; - )
