Writing Assignment (Pg. 435) In this section, you have been using the Law of Sines to solve oblique triangles. Can the Law of Sines also be used to solve right triangles? If so, write a short paragraph explaining how to use the Law of Sines to solve each below. Is there and easier way to solve these triangles? a.) B = 50o, C = 90o, c = 20 (AAS) 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 sine of 50 and use “SOH”, setting sin

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....
