Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

In this triangle we know:

  • angle M= 92°
  • angle N = 50°
  • and side N = 51inch

It's easy to find angle h by using 'angles of a triangle add to 180°':

  L= 180° − 92° − 50° = 38°

We can also find side a by using The Law of Sines:

n/sin n = l/sin l

51/sin(50°) = L/sin(38°)

  L= (51 × sin(38°))/sin(50°)
  L= 40  inch


Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
