Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1As to how I figured it out, I began by constructing that perpendicular line segment, and then I assumed the statement was true. I found that sin(thetaphi)=sin(angle b), and a sin(b)= that line segment I constructed. Then, sin(phi)=opp/hyp=contructed line segment/(a+something), or (a+something)sin(phi) =a sin(thetaphi) and the only value for something that makes sense is that segment.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1dw:1337941445676:dw a sin(thetaphi)=constructed line segment > let's call that segment length y Then, (a+x) sin(phi)=opp/hyp >opp is segment y, and hyp would be x+a  the only definition of x that works is in my drawing. Thus, (a+x)sin(phi)=(a+x)*(opp/hyp)=(a+x)(y)/(x+a)=y and a sin(thetaphi) is also y, and so we can substitute (y)(y)=0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Max I can get is \[asin(\theta)(x+a)sin(\phi)=0\] assuming x was there dw:1337941920722:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@.Sam. , that's what I meant... I'm sure that that is x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I've ended up with another solution \[rcos(90+\phi\theta)(x+r)sin(\phi)=0\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3angle TBO= 180(180theta+phi)=thetaphi \[\frac{(x+a)}{\sin(\theta\phi)}=\frac{a}{\sin \phi}\]\[(x+a)\sin \phi=asin(\theta\phi)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3so\[asin(\theta\phi)(x+a)\sin \phi=0\]
