I have a triangle the bottom left side is my A and it is 32 degrees, my right bottom side is 63 degrees the upper side is point C which i calculate to be 85 degrees (180 deg)

from point B to C the side is 9 and from point A to C is missing, so i calculate this problem using the law of sines

9/sin 32 = y/ sin 63 = c/sin 85

9(sin 63) / sin 32 = Y

8.02 / sin 32 =y

y= 15.13

did i calculate this right?

I am getting 16.9

sin(32)=9/x

.5299=9/x

x=9/.5299

I hope I understand your triangle but if I did this is the answer

'y', 'c', 'x'? Is someone planning to write a definition for these terms?
