# Solve the Triangle B=48 , a=31 , b=26 , ,
The Law of Sines produces an ambiguous angle result. This means that there are angles that will correctly solve the equation. For the first triangle, use the first possible angle value.
Solve for the first triangle.
The law of sines is based on the proportionality of sides and angles in triangles. The law states that for the angles of a non-right triangle, each angle of the triangle has the same ratio of angle measure to sine value.
