In the second, use the Sine Rule to evaluate angle B. This will be enough information to get angle C. Then you can use the Sine Rule to evaluate AB.

For the 1st problem ... AO, BO, and CO (sketch it in) are all angle bisectors.

Angle BCO = 60 degrees, therefore angle OAB + angle OBA = 30 degrees $\implies$ angle AOB = 150 degrees

Use the cosine law with triangle AOB to determine AB
