$$\frac{\sin C}{20}=\frac{\sin 65^{\circ}}{19}$$

Multiply both sides of the equation by 20.

$$\sin C=20\,*\,\frac{\sin 65^{\circ}}{19} \\~\\ \sin C = \frac{20\sin 65^{\circ}}{19}$$

Take the arcsin of both sides of the equation.

$$C = \arcsin(\frac{20\sin 65^{\circ}}{19})$$

So...putting this into a calculator gives us

$$C\approx72.556^{\circ}$$
