In Exercises 17 to 22, use a form of the Law of Sines to find the measure of the indicated side or angle. Angle measures should be found to the nearest degree and lengths of sides to the nearest tenth of a unit. To determine

To find:

The measure of the indicates side or angle.

Explanation

Formula:

The Law of Sines,

sinαa=sinβb=sinγc

Where α, β, and γ is the acute angle of the triangle, and a, b, and c is the sides of the triangle.

Calculation:

Given,

Here, take a=12 in.

b=x

β=60°

α=70°

By the Law of Sines,

sinαa=sinβb=sinαc

Take,

sinαa=sinβb

Here,

a=12 in, b=x, β=60°, and α=70°

sin70°12=sin60°x
