 What
do you recall from Geometry about the
sides opposite the angles?
 What
makes a triangle oblique?
 How is trigonometry useful to solve and find
the areas of oblique triangles?
 What situations create the ambiguous case
for the Law of Sines?
 What is a directional bearing and how is it
applied to real life situations?
 How do you use trigonometric functions to
solve real life problems?

 What


does it mean?
Calculate the measure of ALL the angles
Calculate the measure of ALL the sides
 What

Any triangle that does not have a right angle
 How

are they?
do you solve them?
You need to know the measure of at least one
side and the measure of any two other parts.

 Why
is this important?
 Because
of prevailing winds, a tree grew so
that it was leaning 6° from the vertical
(90°). At a point 30 meters from the tree,
the angle of elevation to the top of the tree
is 22.5°. Find the height of the tree.

 Find
the area of a triangular lot with side
lengths that measure 24 yards and 18 yards
and form an 80° angle.
 On
a small lake, a child swam from point A to
point B at a bearing of N 28°E. The child
then swam to point C at a bearing of N 58°W.
Point C is 800 meters due north of point A.
How many total meters did the child swim?
 How
do you use trigonometry to solve and
find the areas of oblique triangles?
