Side Side Angle Applet

In constructing triangles, side-side-angle does not in general, uniquely determine the triangle.

This applet lets you build your intuition on this matter by trying to specifying two lengths and a non-included angle, and see what triangles are constructed.

Sometimes you do not get any triangle at all.  Sometimes you get a uniquely determined triangle.  Sometimes you get two triangles matching the specifications.
