In triangle ABC, SinB =1 .Therefore B= 90 degree. The triangle is right angled at B and AC hypotenuse.

Sin A = 1/2 . Therefore A = 30 degree and the remaing angle C = 180-(90+30) = 60 degree.

Therefore, BC = AC sin A . AC = BC/sinA = 4/(1/2) = 8

AB = ACcosA=8*cos30 = 8(sqrt3/2) = 4sqrt3

Therefore area of the triangle = (1/2)AB*BC

= (1/2)(4sqrt3)(4) = 8sqrt3 = (8sqrt3) = 13.8564 square units approximately.

because of sin(A)=1/2 ,A=30 ,sin(B)=1,B=90

therefore ABC right angle triangle (90 , 60 , 30 )

so the side opposite to the 30degree=1/2(chord)=4

chord=8 ======>the theird side =sqrt((8^2)-(4^2))=sqrt(48)

### the surface of the ABC triangle=1/2 * 4 *sqrt(48)

=13.8564
