Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You can use trigonometry for this. sin(60) = PS / RP PS is given as 12 in so RP = 12 / sin(60) = 13.9 in

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Don't bother with sin, cos and tan for this stuff, it's a waste of time...just look up the relationships for special triangles. search 306090 and 454590...
