6-1 Law of Sines
When to Use The Law of Sines
The law of sines formula can be used to solve AAS, SSA, and ASA triangles. Please note that when solving the SSA formula using the law of sines, you have an ambiguous case. There could be no solution, one solution, or two triangular solution for a problem in the SSA format.
