triangle Section 64 Math 150 Lecture Notes The Law of Sines Recall that the following properties are triangle congruences ie there is exactly one possible triangle that can be drawn with the given information SSS SAS ASA AAS An AAA congruence does not produce triangle congruence although the triangles are similar A SSA congruence ASS does not produce a triangle congruence since there are sometimes two triangles that meet the given criteria To solve atriangle given ASA AAS or SSA use the Law of Sines To solve atriangle given SAS or SSS use the Law of Cosines often followed by the Law of Sines Law of Sines sinA sinB sinC b c In triangle ABC When two sides and an angle not between them SSA is known there may or may not be a unique triangle This situation is often called the

temperature area are called scalars A vector is a line segment with magnitude and an assigned direction An arrow is used to specify the direction Vector AB has initial pointA and terminal point B The magnitude or length of the vector is the length of the segment AB and is denoted by Two vectors are equal if they have equal magnitude and the same direction Vector A C is the sum of vectors EB and B C when it is the displacement u A B followed by the displacement v BC Multiplication of a Vector by a Scalar If a is a real number and v is a vector then av is a vector of magnitude lal lvl and has the same direction as v ifa gt 0 or the opposite direction as v if a lt 0 The difference of two vectors u and v is de ned by u 7 v u v In the coordinate plane a vector v can be represented as an ordered pair of real numbers v a b where a is the horizontal component of v and b is the vertical component of v Component Form of a Vector If a vector v is represented in the plan with initial pointP x1 y1 and terminal point Q x2 yz then v x2 7x1 yz y1gt Two vectors are equal iii their corresponding components are equal The magnitude or length ofa vector v a b is lvl x a2 b2 SecmnRe Algebraic

with one side and try to transform it in to the other side using identities It is usually easier to start with the more complicated side Use algebra and trig identities to change the side you started with Rewrite fractions with equivalent fractions using a common denominator Use factoring and trig identities to simplify expressions When all else fails try rewrite all functions in terms of sine and cosine Note You may work backwards from the other side but you cannot leave the proof in that form Use that information only to help you gure out how to think about the proof N E Section 71 Example 1
