    have you learned SOHCAHTOA? (theta\[\sin \Theta=opp/hyp \] \[\cos \Theta=adj/hyp\] \[\tan \theta=opp/adj\]

    for question a we know the adj and angle 60 degrees and we want to know hyp SohCahToa so we Cah \[Cos \theta=adj/hyp\]

    here adj = 12 , hyp = c and cos(60)

    OR did you take that: In semi equilateral triangle: The hypotenuse = 2 ( shorter leg) and the longer leg = square root of 3 times the shorter leg ?? * I think it's easier to use it in this problem.

    hmm SOH stands for Sine equals Opposite over Hypotenuse. B is the opposite side and C is the hypotenuse
