    Ambiguous Cases

    If anyone could please explain how to solve, I would really appreciate it. Thanks!

    Use the given information to solve the triangle. If two solutions exist, list both.

    . B=25degrees, a=6.2, b=4

    My teacher told us this one was an ambiguous case.... so far I found thatyA=41 degrees, and C=114 degrees.... I can't find the other solutions...
    help please!

    when you do the inverse sin and get an answer, 180 - (your answer) is also a solution .
