    \[AB=AD+DB\] \[\cos(60°)=\sin(30°)=\frac{AD}{14}\] \[\sin(60°)=\cos{(30°)}=\frac{DC}{14}\]

    Do I then need to use the sin and cosine formula to figure the rest out?

    actually you can work out angle DCB with a trig identity, because be know two of the sides, and then use another trig identity to find DB

    \[\sin60°=\cos30°\] is a little bit tricker on a calculator, because the value given is irrational but you can square the output 0.86602540... 0.86602540...^2=0.75=3/4 so \[\sin60°=\cos30°= \sqrt{\frac{3}{4}}=\frac{\sqrt3}2\]
