Not exactly a homework question, even though it is related to my homework...(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

So, the law is:

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

So, in certain problems we have to manipulate this law. For example our givens include angle C and side c.

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

a would have to equal [(c sin A)/sin C]

Why can't a = [sin C/(c sin A)]

If someone can explain this, I'd greatly appreciate it.

Thanks.
