# A triangle has sides A, B, and C. Sides A and B have lengths of 5 and 8, respectively. The angle between A and C is (7pi)/24 and the angle between B and C is  (7pi)/24. What is the area of the triangle?

There seems to be some mistake in the problem. See Explanation below.

#### Explanation:

Given that, angle btwn. (A,C) $= 7 \frac{\pi}{24}$= Angle btwn. (B,C).

$\therefore$ Length of side opp. to angle btwn. (A,C) = the Length of side opp. to angle btwn. (B,C).

#:.side B=sideA..........(I)

But it is given that length of side B=8, and that of A=5. This contradicts (I).

Kindly, check the problem!
