    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 *  *  *  *  *  *  +  *  *

                            *
                         *  :*
                 12   *     : *
                   *        :  *8
                *           :   *
             * 30          :    *
        A *  *  *  *  *  *  +  *  *
    Is drawing the only way to answer such questions about how many different triangles?
