5.6 Sine Law
Homework: Page 318-320: #3, 7,8, 10, 15-17
Learning Objectives/Success Criteria: At the end of this lesson I will be able to:
+ Consider the ambiguous case of the sine law for 4 different cases
+ Solve word problems related to bearings
1, Review of Sine and Cosine Law:
Inany ABC:
Cosine law: a’ =b’+c?—2becosA
bi wa*+c?—2accosB
cP =a? +b?-2abcosC
The Cosine Law can be used to find the third side of a triangle when two sides and the contained angle are
given. ‘The contained angle is the angle between the two known sides.

Sine law:
sin sinB sinC ab oc
To apply the Sine Law to solve a triangle, we must know the measure of one angle and the length of the
opposite side, plus one other angle or side.
~* 9 Sine and/or Cosine Laws can be used to solve any triangle given:
‘+ The length of one side and the measures of two angles; or
+ The lengths of two sides and the measure of any one angle; or
+ The lengths of the three sides.
If we are given only the measures of 3 angles, then there is an infinite number of similar triangles with this.
shape; the lengths of the sides of the triangle can be expressed only in terms of one of the sides ofthe triangle.
‘That is, the Cosine and Sine Law enable us to solve any triangle given any three pieces of data except the
measures of the three angles. The solution is always unique with the exception of the ambigious case of the

ia2, Ambiguous Case of the Sine Law:
When you are given the length of 2 sides and an angle that is not contained by the two sides (i.e. an SSA
triangle), multiple triangles CAN exist.
if ZA, aand bare given and ZA is acute, there are four possible cases to consider. For each scenario, the
‘height of the triangle is h= bsina.
If ZA isacute and ab, one triangle exists.
If ZA is obtuse and a## More From Bradley Singh
