In triangle AMC angle M =90 degree and angle ACM =19-120=60 degree
AM/ AC = sin 60 =sqrt(3)/2
AM/8 =sqrt(3)/2
AM =4*sqrt(3) ..............(i)
CM/AC = cos 60 =1/2
CM/8 =1/2
CM = 4 ...............(i)
Now in triangle AMB
AB^2=AM^2+BM^2
AB^2 =AM^2 +(10+4)^2
=48 +196
=244
Taking sqrt
AB =sqrt(244)=15.62 units ..................Ans

In △ ABC angle C = 120°.
M is the foot of perpendicular drawn from vertex A to line BC.
If AC = 8, BC = 10, AB = ?
Since angle C is obtuse the perpendicular AM on BC is outside △ ABC.
Angle CAM = 30°
CM/AC = sin 30° = 1/2, CM = 1/2 AC = 4
CM/AM = tan 60° = 1.732
4/AM = 1.732
AM = 4/1.732 = 2.3094
AB^2
= AM^2 + MB^2
= 2.3094^2 + (10 + 4)^2
= 201.333
AB = 14.1892
