Anchor Problem #2 will require the teacher to do a significant amount of modeling to define and algebraically verify the Law of Sines. Reference EngageNY, Geometry, Module 2, Lesson 32: Teacher Version (Discussion) for more guidance on this.

a. Find the lengths of $$d$$ and $$e$$.
b. Why can't you use the same method to find the lengths of $$x$$ and $$y$$?

Modified by Fishtank Learning, Inc.There is a rule, the Law of Sines, which allows you to use trigonometric ratios to determine side lengths and angles of non-right triangles.
Law of Sines:
Given $${\triangle ABC}$$,
Using the two congruent triangles below and the altitudes drawn, show that the Law of Sines is true.
