I need help finding the missing side using the law of sines, a=42 C=48 and C=12

2 sides of a triangle are 7 and 11 inches. If a 3rd side of the triangle is also an integer, what's the product of the smallest and largest values that the side could be?

i want to know what is the length the shortest side of this triangle step by step

This is a precalculus question involving right triangle trigonometry

Triangle ABC: side AB: not given. Side BC: x+10. Side AC: 2x+4. Angles: Angle A is greater than Angle B. What are the restrictions on x?

A ladder leans against a side of a building, making a 63-degree angle with the ground, and reaching over a fence that is 6 feet from the building. The ladder barely touches the top of the fence, which...

Since i cant show the actual triangle i hope it will help if i mention that line BA of the triangle is 5 and so is line AC A) 2√5 B) 5√2 C) 10 D) 25 I beileve...

The longest side of a triangle is 12 less than the sum of the other two sides. The shortest side is 10 more than one-half the third side. If the perimeter is 118, find each side and write the lengths...
