To find the lengths of sides A and B of the triangle, we can use the law of cosines.

The law of cosines states that for any triangle with sides (a), (b), and (c) and the angle (C) opposite to side (c), the following equation holds:

[ c^2 = a^2 + b^2 - 2ab \cdot \cos(C) ]

Given that side (c) has a length of 15 and the angle between sides (B) and (C) is (\frac{3\pi}{8}), we can plug these values into the law of cosines to solve for the lengths of sides (A) and (B).

[ 15^2 = A^2 + B^2 - 2AB \cdot \cos\left(\frac{3\pi}{8}\right) ]

We also know that the angle between sides (A) and (B) is (\frac{\pi}{4}). Using this information, we can use the cosine of (\frac{\pi}{4}) (which is ( \frac{\sqrt{2}}{2} )) to simplify our equation further.

[ \frac{\sqrt{2}}{2} = \frac{A^2 + B^2 - 15^2}{2AB} ]

Now, we have two equations:

- ( 15^2 = A^2 + B^2 - 2AB \cdot \cos\left(\frac{3\pi}{8}\right) )
- ( \frac{\sqrt{2}}{2} = \frac{A^2 + B^2 - 15^2}{2AB} )

We can solve this system of equations to find the lengths of sides (A) and (B).

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
