Objective

Use the Law of Sines and the Law of Cosines to

solve triangles.

In this lesson, you will learn to solve any

triangle. To do so, you will need to calculate

trigonometric ratios for angle measures up to

180. You can use a calculator to find these

values.

Example 1 Finding Trigonometric Ratios for

Obtuse Angles

Use your calculator to find each trigonometric

ratio. Round to the nearest hundredth.

A. tan 103

B. cos 165

C. sin 93

tan 103 4.33

cos 165 0.97

sin 93 1.00

Check It Out! Example 1

Use a calculator to find each trigonometric

ratio. Round to the nearest hundredth.

a. tan 175

b. cos 92

c. sin 160

tan 175 0.09

cos 92 0.03

sin 160 0.34

You can use the altitude of a triangle to find a

relationship between the triangles side lengths.

You can use the Law of Sines to solve a triangle

if you are given two angle measures and any

side length (ASA or AAS) or two side lengths

and a non-included angle measure (SSA).

Example 2A Using the Law of Sines

Find the measure. Round lengths to the nearest

tenth and angle measures to the nearest degree.

FG

Law of Sines

Substitute the given values.

Cross Products Property

FG sin 39 40 sin 32

Divide both sides by sin 39.

Example 2B Using the Law of Sines

Find the measure. Round lengths to the nearest

tenth and angle measures to the nearest degree.

mQ

Law of Sines

Substitute the given values.

Multiply both sides by 6.

Use the inverse sine function to find mQ.

tenth and angle measures to the nearest degree.

NP

Cross Products Property

NP sin 39 22 sin 88

Divide both sides by sin 39.

Use the inverse sine function to find mX.

Check It Out! Example 2d

Find the measure. Round lengths to the nearest

tenth and angle measures to the nearest degree.

Substitute the given values.

mA 67 44 180

mA 69

Simplify.

Check It Out! Example 2D Continued

Find the measure. Round lengths to the nearest

tenth and angle measures to the nearest degree.

Law of Sines

Substitute the given values.

Cross Products Property

AC sin 69 18 sin 67

Divide both sides by sin 69.

The Law of Sines cannot be used to solve every

triangle. If you know two side lengths and the

included angle measure or if you know all three

side lengths, you cannot use the Law of Sines.

Instead, you can apply the Law of Cosines.

You can use the Law of Cosines to solve a

triangle if you are given two side lengths and

the included angle measure (SAS) or three side

lengths (SSS).
