    \[ \sin 50 = 100/x\] find x using calculator

    \[ \sin \theta = p/h\] the question is asking you to find h ... and also note this is a right angled triangle

    trig ratios is what you need to know for these

    btw it is not sine in this case but tangent i think

    should have known better. do you know the trig ratios for a triangle?

    so for the angle given , lets call it \(x\) in terms of \(a, b, c\) can you say what \[\sin(x)\] is? you are right, you can use soh cah toa if you know what they mean

    so in your picture, you are trying to find the hypotenuse \(h\) so you know from "SOH" that the sine of 50 is the opposite over the hypotenuse, or \[\sin(50)=\frac{100}{h}\] and then you solve for \(h\) via \[h=\frac{100}{\sin(50)}\]
