Let's say we know angle A, B, C and we also know side a

First, try doing tanA= a/b

Find side b

Then do sinB=b/c

Find side c.
 

All info is now known.

Rarinstraw's answer is correct if the triangle is a right triangle with C as the 90ยบ angle, but if the triangle is not a right triangle, you can use the Law of Sines to find other two lengths.

 

The Law of Sines says:

 

\(\frac{a}{\sin A}=\frac{b}{\sin B}=\frac{c}{\sin C}\)

 

where  ,  ,  and   are angles, and  ,  , and  , are sides across from their respective angles.
