sin (A+B) = sin A cos B + cos A sin B

sin (45°+30°) = sin(45°) cos(30°) + cos(45°) sin(30°)

sin 75° = sin 75° =  Multiplying the denominator by 2√2, we get Hence, we get

a : b : c = 2 : √6 : (√3+1)

### Question 2: If in △ABC, ∠C=105°, ∠B=45°, and a=2, then find b.

Solution:

In the given condition, ∠C=105° and ∠B=45°

And as we know that,

A+B+C = π (Sum of all angles in triangle is supplementary)

A = π-(B+C)

A = 180°-(45°+105°)

A = 30°

Now, according the sine rule After rationalizing the denominator, we get ### Question 3: In △ABC, if a=18, b=24, and c=30 and ∠C=90°, find sin A, sin B, and sin C.

Solution:

In the given condition, a=18, b=24 and c=30 and ∠C=90°

Now, according the sine rule Also, ### Solution:

According to the sine rule Considering RHS, we have

RHS = (b2-c2) sin A

= λ2 sin A(sin2 B – sin2 C)

By using trigonometric identities,

sin2 a – sin2 b = sin(a+b) sin (a-b)

= λ2 sin A(sin(B+C) sin (B-C))

= λ2 sin A(sin(\pi-A) sin (B-C))

= λ2 sin A(sin(A) sin (B-C))

= λ2 sin2 A sin (B-C)
