Work Step by Step

An oblique triangle in which two sides and an angle are given not always results a triangle (when the angle opposite to the shorter side is given, because when using the law of sines to get the second angle, we can get two angles because there are $2$ angles which result in the same number when the sine function is applied to them). Hence the statement is false.
