C = 85 degrees 20', a = 35. c = 50

I am confused as to how to find A, B, and b of the triangle.

Hi iluvmathbutitshard,

Try using the law of cosines.

You can solve for b here, then use that answer to solve for angle B by using the law of sines.

Or....

Use the law of sines to start with to find angle A.

Then, you'll have angle A and angle C. Easy to find angle B.

Use law of sines again to find b.
