Determine the number of solution for each possible triangle
B= 61 degrees a=12 b=8
The answer on the back of my book states zero.
Although I would think it has 2 because
12> b sin a when a is 29 degrees
Can anyone help me as I am slightly confused.
Wikipedia offers and explanation and drawing which is helpful.

Hello, homeylova223!
Determine the number of solution for this triangle:
. .
The answer on the back of my book states: zero..
If you had made a sketch, the answer would have been obvious.
Code:C * /:\ / : \ a=12 / : \ b=8 / : \ / : \ / : /61o : B * - - - + - - - * A D
Draw altitude to side
In right triangle
Side is only 8 units long.
There is no triangle.
