1. EQ: What is the law of sines, and how can we use it to solve right triangles?

2. EQ: What is the law of sines, and how can we use it to solve right triangles? The Law of Sines allows you to solve a triangle as long as you know either of the following: 1. Two angle measures and any side length–angle-angle-side (AAS) or angle-side-angle (ASA) information 2. Two side lengths and the measure of an angle that is not between them–side-side-angle (SSA) information

3. EQ: What is the law of sines, and how can we use it to solve right triangles? Using the Law of Sines for AAS and ASA Solve the triangle. Round to the nearest tenth. Step 1. Find the third angle measure. mD + mE + mF = 180° Triangle Sum Theorem. Substitute 33° for mD and 28° for mF. 33° + mE + 28° = 180° mE = 119° Solve for mE.
