    How do you know when you are given a triangle of an ambiguous case?
    I know the sin ambiguous case only applies if you are given 2 sides and a non included angle right?
    But was does non included angle actually mean? (does it mean that there is no angle joining the 2 sides together :/)

    If you have a triangle with two given sides, then those two sides will be joined together at a vertex. The angle at the vertex is the included angle. (It's included between the two sides).
    Either/both of the other two angles are non-included.
