 Wyatt's Geometry Blog This blog is for Miss Jovanovich's algebra and geometry classes to share ideas, ask questions, and reflect on what skills and topics we are studying. If we are lucky, we might even get a chance to connect with other students studying the same stuff.

Law of Sines Dear readers/fellow bloggers
With the law of sines, anything is possible, at least if you’re trying to solve a triangle and have and angle and another opposite side along with a third side, or second angle. Now that we know about Sine Cosine and Tangent and their inverses, where do we go now? What if the triangle isn’t a right triangle, but your geometry or trigonometry teacher tells you to solve it without “enough information”. If you simply have either 2 sides or 2 angles, and one of the opposite sides or angles from the ones already given, you can solve it. I’m probably making sound 10 times more difficult than it actually is, but if you can solve proportion problems and know how to use Sine, Cosine, and Tangent with their inverses, you’ll be fine. At least until you hear about the Law of Cosines.
