The diagram shows triangle ABC in which AC=4cm, BC=5cm and ACB=60 degrees.

a) Show that AB = Square root of 21

b) find the value of sin (angle ABC) in the form k(square root)7 where k is an exact fraction

Anyone know how to do this?

For the first make you use the cosine rule

can you finish that off ?

for the second part use the sine rule
