I just don't see how I can go about it, I know I could use the formula for the area of a non-right angled triangle if I split it from B to D and make two triangles (½ ab sin C) However, I don't see how I can use the sine rule and apply it. Any assistance would be appreciated. The question really wants me to use Sine and cosine.
