Solving problems using the sine and cosine rules

in my maths textbook, there is this problem i can't work out:

Adjacent sides of a parallel are 6cm and 8.3cm. The shorter diagonal is 7cm. work out the length of the other diagonal.

your meant to use either the cosine or sine rules, or both together, but without a given angle, i don't know how to work it out.
