Can you clarify what is meant by side X, side P, and side M. As an example if we have and angle ∠X, what is the location of the side X on the triangle? Is it length from X to Y or from X to Z or opposite ∠X? Same question for ∠P and side P and ∠M and side M. Not able to answer this question without this information.

Convention is that side x is opposite angle X.
