Unformatted text preview: of 50 equaling opposite over 20 (Hypotenuse). This will give you the length of side b. b.) B = 50o, C = 90o, a = 10 (ASA) No, one can NOT use the law of sine to solve right triangles Yes, there is an easier way to solve this triangle. If one was to use the simple SOHCAHTOA, one will be able to find all the pieces missing. For example, you can use the tangent of 50 and use TOA, setting tangent of 50 equaling opposite over 20 (adjacent). This will give you the length of side b....
