(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Well, here is the problem. Assuming that the shape is a triangle, find the lengths of all sides, given one angle is 51.168821565 degrees using the law of sine.

sin(51.168821565) = 0.785398161...

3. The attempt at a solution

I basically tried using the theorems, such as that all angles will add up to 180 degrees and A+B > C always.

I tried to find the lengths, but couldn't. Help would be appreciated.

EDIT:

I tried this:

d = opposite

h = hypotnues

sin 51.168821565 = d / h

d / h = 0.785398161

Does this mean there are infinite numbers that can fit side lengths?
