How do you find the area of a triangle using the sine method?
To calculate the area of a triangle using the sine method (where the height is unknown), you have to multiply one side of the triangle by its consecutive side, then multiply the result by the sine of the included angle, and finally divide the result by 2. Formula: Area = side a * side b * sin(included angle) / 2
