The Law of Sines

Video lessons with examples and solutions to help High School students learn how to use the law of sines to solve triangles.

What is the Law of Sines?
The law of sines uses proportions to solve for missing lengths. The ratio of the sine of an angle to the side opposite it is equal for all three angles of a triangle. We can use the law of sines for solving for a missing length or angle of a triangle is by using the law of sines.
The law of sines works for any triangle, not just right triangles. The law of sines is also called the sine rule.
Law of Sines = \(\frac{{\sin (A)}}{A} = \frac{{\sin (B)}}{B} = \frac{{\sin (C)}}{C}\)
