    i hav instructions for the lesson and the definition they gave me for Sine ratio was: with respect to an acute angle of a right triangle, the ratio formed by the side opposite the acute angle over the hypotenuse.

    Okay, sin is opposite over hypotenuse. Sin 48= opposite/ hypotenuse. What's the opposite of sin 48?

    so that would be sin 48* = 10/x

    okay so the problem would be: sin 48* = 10/x sin 48* = 0.7431 0.7431 = 10/x 10 = x(0.7431) and then i divide?

    i divided 0.07431 by 10 and i got 0.07431 and i rounded to the nearest tenth and since 7 is a high number i rounded it to 0.1
