Solve the following right triangle.

b=17.8m and theta = 65 degrees. (Right angle is at bottom left, C is hypotenuse, A is bottom leg, B is left leg, theta is opposite of B).

Solve for a & c

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

a= 8.3m

c= 42.118m

But wouldn't that make the triangle not work?
