Consider the triangle ABC where A=30 degrees b=10 and AB is the horizontal base of the triangle. I have a problem trying to find the smallest value of "a" for which the triangle ABC can exist and range of values of a for two triangles to exist. I calculated B=sin^1 [10 sin (30)]/a I can continue plugging in numbers to find the smallest value, but is there a better way? And I really don't know how to find value for two triangles.
