Example 5

One side of a triangle of length 20, forms a 420 angle with a second side. The length of the third side is 14. Find the length of the second side.

Solution

Let the required triangle be ABC. Given that a = 20, b = 14, and Ð B = 420

\ The first solution of D ABC is obtained.

The second solution will be obtained as

Let A' , B and C' and a' , b' and c' be the elements of the second solution. Let this triangle be A'BC'
