Find the value of c. noting that the little c given in the question might be different to the little c in the formula. Trigonometry The three trigonometric ratios; sine, cosine and tangent are used to calculate angles and lengths in right-angled triangles.

[latex]L\approx 49.7,\text{ }N\approx 56.3,\text{ }LN\approx 5.8[/latex]. See Example 4. For the following exercises, use the Law of Sines to solve, if possible, the missing side or angle for each triangle or triangles in the ambiguous case. A man and a woman standing[latex]\,3\frac{1}{2}\,[/latex]miles apart spot a hot air balloon at the same time. 1. Round each answer to the nearest tenth. What is the altitude of the climber? We know that angle [latex]\alpha =50°[/latex]and its corresponding side[latex]a=10.\,[/latex]We can use the following proportion from the Law of Sines to find the length of[latex]\,c.\,[/latex].
