Well, you set it up correctly, but c = 44*(sin(51

^{o})/sin(29^{0})) = 70.5, not 16.3. Looks like you just computed c incorrectly. Your answer for a is correct.The Triangle Inequality Theorem states that the smallest side will be opposite the smallest angle. Since angle B = 21

^{o}is the smallest angle, side b = 44 must be the smallest side. So getting an answer of 16.3 for a side opposite a larger angle should set off alarm bells in your head that you made a mistake.
