use the law of sines to solve (if possible) the triangle. if two solutions exist, find both. round your answers to two decimal places.   A=58degree, a=4.5, b=25

The Law of Sines:
a/(sinA) = b/(sinB) = c/(sinC)

Using the given information:
4.5/(sin58) = 25/(sinB)
**CROSS MULTIPLY**
sinB = 25(sin58)/4.5
sinB = 4.71

**CANNOT BE SOLVED: sin of any angle cannot be greater than 1..... and 4.71 > 1
