# Thread: How Many Distinct Triangles?

1. ## How Many Distinct Triangles?

How many distinct triangles can be formed if
Angle A = 30 degrees, side b = 12, and side a = 8?

2. Hello, magentarita!

How many distinct triangles can be formed if: . $\angle A = 30^o,\; b = 12,\;a = 8$ ?

There are two possible triangles . . .

Code:
                        *
* *:
12   *   * :
*     *8 :
*       *   :
* 30°     *    :
A *  *  *  *  * - - +

*
*  :*
12   *     : *
*        :  *8
*           :   *
* 30°          :    *
A *  *  *  *  *  *  +  *  *

Is drawing the only way to answer such questions about how many different triangles?
