How would you use the cross product to derive the law of sines?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex] A \times B = |A||B| \sin \theta [/tex].

Law of sines: [tex] \frac{\sin A}{A} = \frac{\sin B}{b} = \frac{\sin C}{c} [/tex].

The cross product gives the area of the parallelogram formed by the vectors.
