# Week 17 in Pre-Calc 11

This week, we have learned trigonometry and I will discuss one of the things I learned: the Sine Law.

It’s a very useful to solve any triangle as long as you have:

• an angle that has a side corresponding it.
• two angles / two sides / one angle and one side.

Here’s how it works: every angle needs to be written in CAPITAL LETTERS and every side needs to be written in LOWER CASE LETTERS.

angle A corresponds with side a or side BC.

angle B corresponds with side b or side AC.

angle C corresponds with side c or side AB.

what’s the formula?

if you’re finding an angle…

$\frac{sinA}{a} = \frac{sinB}{b} = \frac{sinC}{c}$

and if you’re finding a side…

$\frac{a}{sinA} = \frac{b}{sinB} = \frac{c}{sinC}$
