Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0since the side opposite the 30degrees would be the smallest side. sin30=(shortest side)/12 And just simplify that to get. (\[(\sqrt{3}/2)(12) = 6\sqrt{3}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0would the shortest side be half of the hypotenuse? so i was thinking 6

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Actually. Sorry it is 6. For somereason I thought sin30 was equal to root3over2. But your right. The answer is 6. if you used the equation I gave you.
