Solve the triangle using the Law of Sines: Did I do this correctly?

Given: <B = 29 degrees. <C = 51 degrees. b = 44
 
51 + 29 = 80 degrees. <A = 100 degrees.
 
Sin51° / c = sin29°/44
 
c = 44sin51° / sin29°
 
c = 70.5
 
then 
 
sin100° / a = sin29° / 44
 
a = 44sin100° / sin29°
 
a = 89.4

Oh I'm honestly not sure where the 16.8 came from after I just did it for my calculator. I think I was looking at something else. But thanks for verifying
