 Definition The ratio of the sines of the angles of a triangle is equal to the ratio of the lengths of the opposite sides [d] [e]

knowns and unknowns

The article currently states

"useful for calculating one side or angle of any triangle, when five of the six angles and sides are known"

This doesn't seem quite complete...I think. If even one angle _and_ it's corresponding side are known, all one should need to calculate any other angle or side is the corresponding side or angle. --David Yamakuchi 16:21, 18 October 2008 (UTC)
