Hey guys, it's my first post here so please don't chew my head off if I do something forbidden, hahah.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Prove the Law of Sines using Vector Methods.

2. Relevant equations

sin(A)/a = sin(B)/b = sin(C)/c

3. The attempt at a solution

Since axb=sin(C), I decided to try getting the cross product and then trying to match it to the equation. I gave each of the points coordinates and I decided to come here for help when the problem became gigantic and hardly manageable. I've spent a couple of hours on this and I'm not getting anywhere.

If you've got any suggestions for a simpler solution or even just a nudge in the right direction, I'd be very grateful.
