# In Exercises 9 to 12, use the Law of Sines or the Law of cosines to find the indicated length of side or angle measure. Angle measures should be found to the nearest degree; distances should be found to the nearest tenth of a unit. To determine

To find:

The indicated length of side or angle measure using the law of sines or the Law of Cosines.

Explanation

Procedure used:

In any triangle ABC such that

AB=c,

BC=a,

CA=b,

mA=α,

mB=β, and

mC=γ.

The Law of cosines is given by

a2=b2+c2-2bccosα

b2=c2+a2-2cacosβ

c2=a2+b2-2abcosγ

The Law of sines is given by

asinα=bsinβ=csinγ

Calculation:

Given,

From the above figure we have

a=15,

b=16, and

c=14

Also mEDF=α

By the law of cosine we have

a2=b2+c2-2bccosα

Substitute;a=15, b=16, and c=14
