Law of cosines 2001-02-20
From Emily:
I missed a few days of class and I can't figure out how to solve Law of Cosines problems. I have the notes and formulas but I can't figure out how to do the math involved to answer the problems. I am also getting confused about how to use degrees and seconds in the Law of Sine and Cosine. I can't seem to get the correct answers and I don't really know how to solve them and enter them into my TI 86.

From Halnais:
13 h. 25 mn + 18 h. 06 mn
23 h. 31 mn + 19 h. 33 mn

je ne me souviens plus très bien de ces opérations, faut-il additioner les heures à part puis les minutes, etc. pour les heures je crois qu'il ne faut pas dépasser 24 h. Pourriez-vous m'aider, et me donner le résultat, merci infiniment.
