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

 

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

\(C\approx72.556^{\circ}\)
