Answer:

Area of triangle #A_t = (1/2) * a * b * sin C = color(red)(2.5758#

Explanation:

enter image source here

#hatC = pi/3, hat A = (5pi)/12, b = 2#

#hatB = pi - (5pi)/12 - (pi/3) = pi/4#

#a / sin A = b / sin B = c / sin C#

#a = (2 * sin ((5pi)/12)) / sin (pi/4) = 2.2307#

Area of triangle #A_t = (1/2) * a * b * sin C #

#A_t = (1/2) * 2.2307 * 2 sin (pi/3) = color(red)(2.5758#
